Do your kids love writing as much as mine do? I know, silly questions. My kids struggle with writing. It is the most difficult subject for them to learn. I found an amazing product that I want to share with you. My kids LOVED this activity and so did I. All of my students were successful with these lessons.
Lesley selected interesting topics for the kids. She uses a large print that is easy for the kids to read. The lesson are set up in the same manner which the kids love the predicability of. I began the lesson be reviewing transitional words and phrases. We read all of the facts listed. Then we decided which fact told the main idea. We cut out the main idea and glued it down as the title of our paragraph. We read through all of the facts and discussed which order made the most sense and why. Next, students cut out all of the facts and glued them in the correct order.
This student reread the facts and wrote numbers next to each one to remind him which order he wanted to glue them down. I thought that was pretty clever.
After we had our facts glued down in the correct order, we copied our paragraphs onto lined paper. We were focusing on indenting our paragraph and adding in capital letters and punctuation.
