Teaching Real-life Writing to Young Learners
Easy Teacher-tested Lessons That Help Children Learn to Write Lists, Letters, Invitations, How-tos, and Much More
Author Paula Jensvold shares her classroom-tested ways for teaching children how to write for different purposes. Through clear, step-by-step mini-lessons and sample student-teacher dialogues, she demonstrates how to introduce children to must-know forms of real-life writing, including lists, signs and labels, how-to procedures, messages, ads, cards, e-mails, letters, and thank-you notes, and then provides practice activities for each writing form. Includes ideas for differentiated learning, reproducible practice pages, and suggested book lists to connect with each type of writing.
