Common Core Writing

The abilities of students within one classroom can definitely range.  Some students are ready to write an award winning novel while others struggle to write two words. I created a differentiated Common Core aligned writing document to use with my students. These help students at different levels practice writing skills in a meaningful way.  Click Here To Access It

The students have been learning how to support their ideas with relevant and strong text support.  After getting a firm understanding of how to write effective body paragraphs, we began to practice writing our leads (grabbers) for introductory paragraphs.To Access This File Click Here
