Description

Getting Ready to Write, Kindergarten – Grade 1 Guide (Printed – 2015 Edition)

This book is the bridge between the basic concept of the sound/symbol connection, to the use of written words, phrases, and sentences to entertain, inform, or convince an audience of others. The activities in this book lay the groundwork for not only recognizing genre and purpose (narrative, expository, and opinion writing), but to provide opportunities for students to articulate ideas they’d like to express in writing (oral language precedes written) and additionally, for children who are developmentally ready, appropriate venues for them to begin writing in these genres.

A wide variety of lessons in narrative writing, informational and opinion writing, and basic research and the foundational concepts that inform these, are laid out in units that allow the teacher to select both the appropriate activities for the range of learners in the class and to apply the activities to thematic material of their choice.

  • genre and purpose
  • summarizing
  • labeling
  • information writing
  • elaborative detail
  • expressing opinions
  • response to text
  • vocabulary building
  • research

This substantial book has clear objectives for K and 1, and includes detailed lesson plans for the teacher. Student pages are accessible digitally for print and projection in both English and Spanish via a link provided in the guide.

In addition, our K-1 Activity Cards, which are sold separately, are the perfect convenient complement to Getting Ready to Write.
