Learning to write paragraphs in first grade is super challenging! Students start with writing one or two simple sentences and slowly develop into writing more complex sentences, writing on topic for three different genres, and learn how to expand their sentences.
Over the years I have discovered a way to teach writing that works great for my students. I finally am at the point where I am ready to start developing my own writing curriculum because I have not found one that adequately meets the needs of my students. So, here is the very beginning lesson that I have created. It’s a slow process, but I am so excited for what is to come.
