1st - Choose a topic
2nd-Brainstorm & Create an Idea Web
This is a sample of an idea web we did in class together. Students will be using this type of graphic organizer to gather their topic and ideas for writing.
We take our idea web and begin trying to write our stories. Students sound out as best they can and then I will be going over their writing with them and helping them make corrections before writing final copies. We will be concentrating on topic choice, idea webs and forming complete sentences with correct grammar and punctuation for the first part of the school year.
