Writing to Standards: Teacher's Resource of Writing Activities for PreK-6.
Designed to meet the fundamental state standards and reform agreed upon by educators, this book, with its unique approach to writing, offers teachers an essential resource to spark creativity and skillful writing in all students. Each chapter in the book begins with a question, giving students a hands-on opportunity to explore a specific writing trait. The book's real-world activities, such as writing in a community newspaper, can be used as exercises for the entire class or as independent work for individual students. The book's activities allow students to grow through exploration of the process of writing as they experiment with: Voice--Who am I?; Ideas and Content--What do I want to say?; Word Choice--What words do I choose?; Sentence Fluency--How do I put words in order?; Organization--Where do I start and when do I end?; and Conventions--What symbols and rules do I use? Contains a resource--"Defining Values" newspaper columns--and a 24-item bibliography. (NKA)
