Our Getting Ready to Write guide is jam-packed with lessons that will prepare your youngest writers for narrative, expository/informative, and opinion writing, as well as age-appropriate research skills. This book focuses on awareness and understanding of the story and the genre, with age-appropriate lessons for your youngest authors. This guide comes with a set of K1 Activity cards in Spanish.

We also have a set of Tabletop Sentence Starters that provide easy-reference sensory sentence starters to help students improve word choice and sentence variety.

Spanish Writing Guides (Grades 2nd-5th)

Our Informational/Expository & Opinion Writing Guides include all of the foundational expository and opinion writing skills. They also include strategies and lesson plans necessary for effective expository, opinion, and response to text writing.

A strong reading-writing connection is established throughout the guide, and offers multiple opportunities for deconstructing, analyzing, and annotating texts to prepare students to write in response to them.

The Narrative Writing Guide includes all of the foundational narrative writing skills for your students, and provides everything you need to be successful at teaching narrative, personal experience, and response to text writing.

A Sentence A Day for Grade 2 is another phenomenal resource. In an engaging, fast-paced ten minutes a day, students continue to learn how to construct sentences, recognize parts of simple sentences, parts of speech, grammar, and punctuation. During this time, we reinforce the essential characteristics of narrative and expository writing.

The Student Writing Folders are a great reference tool and organizer all in one. When writing, students can refer to the suggested sentence starters to help build variety and interesting word choice in their writing. Then, they can store their work in progress in the handy pocket inside these brightly colored folders.
