Publisher Description:

Write on Track is a writing handbook for students in grade 3. You'll find guidelines, models, checklists, tips, and much more. Write on Track also helps students become better readers, test takers, and learners. The handbook has five main parts.

  • The Process of Writing helps your students learn all about writing, from using the writing process to understanding the qualities of good writing.
  • The Forms of Writing section provides guidelines and models for every form of writing. Would you like your students to write in journals or create time-travel fantasies? Would you like them to write essays or news stories? Check out this section.
  • The Tools of Learning section helps your students improve skills in reading, speaking, test taking, and using technology.
  • The Proofreader’s Guide includes rules and examples to help students with punctuation, spelling, mechanics, usage, and grammar.
  • The Student Almanac supports writing across the curriculum with fascinating science facts, helpful math tips, colorful maps, and much more!

A free online Write on Track Teacher's Guide walks you through the student handbook, giving advice for using each page in your classroom. You'll also find free document downloads, related minilessons, additional student models, additional writing topics, videos, and more. And the Teacher's Guide correlates every page to the Common Core State Standards, connecting you to even more resources.

From the creators of the effective Write Source Program, Thoughtful Learning’s K-12 Writing prioritizes the building of strong writers from kindergarten through adulthood. Teaching the process and traits of writing, major modes, listening and speaking, studying and test taking, students will understand and apply the writing process at all levels through this cohesive spiral program. Grammar, usage, and mechanics are integrated with writing instruction. Applying writing skills across the curriculum includes assignments that use the various writing forms to major content areas (taking notes, summarizing/paraphrasing, learning logs). Multimedia reports, email communications, planning personal websites, and citing electronic sources are integrated with more traditional writing experiences. Extensive coverage and well-developed evaluation rubrics based on the six traits of writing are part of the revising/editing process. Worth mentioning, there are occasional references to classroom activities, although most of these can easily be done in a homeschool setting.

Colorfully illustrated, the 6.5” x 9” Student Handbooks provide user friendly lessons, visually appealing information, and an emphasis on self-review. The comprehensive online Teacher Guide is available at the publisher’s website. The Teacher Guide includes the scope and sequence, yearlong timetable, getting-started activities, lesson plans, assessment supports, downloadable activities, lesson specific mini lessons and more. Parents and Teachers will appreciate the lesson correlations CCSS, TEKS, and LAFS.

Recommended but optional, the SkillsBooks provide systematic grammar, usage, and mechanics practice at each grade level. The SkillsBook Teacher’s Edition includes full size student pages with answers (if indicated). No additional teaching instruction included. Grade level courses are available as well as All Write, a remedial ELA program that enables middle school students to catch up before high school. It is also an excellent resource for ESL/ELL students. Available individually or in a package with Handbook, SkillsBook, and SkillsBook Teacher Guide. See individual grade levels for content overview. Convenient grade level packages are available, and include the Handbook (with online Teacher’s Guide), SkillsBook, and SkillsBook Teacher’s Edition.
