Writing through the Year: Building Confident Writers One Month at a Time. Grades 2-6.
Based on the idea that good writing is developed with instruction, critique, and practice, this book, intended for teachers of grades 2-6, offers a comprehensive outline for guiding students to writing competence. For each month of the school year, the book gives sample daily sentences for primary and upper elementary grades, journal writing topics, a variety of lessons for developing writing skills in a developmental fashion, poetry to memorize, poetry to write, and vocabulary development based on root words and prefixes. A wide variety of writing experiences are provided that allow students to work on grammar rules, to develop the ability to present ideas with clarity and organization, to think creatively, and to try out the richness of the written word. The book is organized into 10 chapters, September through June. Contains reproducible forms including sentence of the day, experts of the dictionary, and point sheets for various activities. (CR)
