In this ongoing writing class the students will be introduced to Writing Workshop model of writing throughout the year. Each month is a new unit of study and monthly theme in writing: Getting Ready for Second Grade Writing- Mechanics of Writing, Narrative Writing, Fictional Writing, Informational Writing, How to Writing, Opinion Writing I, Comic Strip Writing, Writing Fairy Tales, Poetry Writing, Daily Writing Skills, Writing Prompts, and a second unit of study on Opinion Writing II . ...
The students will develop in their second grade daily writing skills, and learn different writing strategies to generate ideas for writing a specific writing task.
As an elementary classroom/ special education teacher, teaching the writing is a good way to launch the new year. The students are able to tell stories about themselves and share what is important to them. This builds a sense of community in the classroom. This writing class helps the young writers develop their writing skills and confidence in writing. I have seen students achieve success and growth with learning new craft moves and learning new strategies in writing.
Optional choice- Students may continue their writing assignments after class has ended to practice their new skills.
1 file available upon enrollmentA small composition book for writing. The students will complete their assignments through: Power Point slides/ Google slides within the Outschool portal.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
During the writing to class , I will assess the students writing skills using a rubric for writing from the second grade level. I will complete informal assessments throughout the lessons to provide extra support to the students writing. First, during the students active engagement at the beginning of the lesson. Then, during the middle of the lesson within small group instruction, and at the end assessing the students completed assignments and tasks
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
