"Writing is thinking on paper."

William Zinsser

We will be using a writing program entitled Being a Writer.  I will be modeling good writing skills for your child to learn how to write.  Below is a list of skills that your child should master by the end of the year:

  • write paragraphs about a single topic that address audience and purpose
  • participate in daily writing activities
  • use steps of the writing process
  • write responses to text
  • write letters
  • write poetry
