I used this template to create Writing Offices for my third grade students. The students have these offices available when they are writing and can refer to the information listed there! It includes information about: the writing process, an editing checklist, punctuation, writing super sentences, transition and story words, letter formation (both print and cursive) and a space to put current work.
Opinion Writing - With this fun writing unit students will write about what they think is the best fruit and the best outdoor activity. This writing packet would be great to teach along with a health and nutrition unit. Meets Common Core Standards for 1st/2nd grades.
