Product Description:

Gentle introduction to the writing process with age-appropriate lessons. Students learn high-frequency words connected to themes, the writing process, forms of writing (notes, lists, stories, and more), and the tools for learning– including an introduction to a computer keyboard. Children also create a personal ABC word dictionary and review phonics through word studies. Simple black and white line drawings are perfect for young writers to improve their creative coloring skills. Free online resources include the Writing Spot Big Book and the Teacher Guide.

Publisher Description:

Every kindergartner needs a Writing Spot—a special place filled with fun words to write and pictures to color and ideas to draw. The Writing Spot Buddy Book gives your students just such a space, with activities designed to engage kindergartners while teaching them important sight words and helping them build meaningful sentences from them. Spot the dog is their best friend and guide on this journey through writing and learning.

Students write their names right on the inside covers and continue to color and write on every page afterward, making the books their very own. They’ll find these welcoming sections in The Writing Spot Buddy Book:

  • The Process of Writing helps your students prewrite, write, revise, and edit.
  • The Forms of Writing shows your students how to write notes, lists, stories, and more.
  • The Tools of Learning teaches students how to learn with others and use computers.
  • Word Study/Phonics helps your students explore letters, sounds, words, and sentences.
  • Almanac/Theme Pages teach important high-frequency words at work and play—and everywhere in between.
  • Alphabet Pages provide a personal ABC word dictionary for students to complete, along with more high-frequency words.

The Writing Spot Buddy Book anchors a full kindergarten writing program: The free online Big Book presents beautiful, colorful images to engage and inspire students to write, read, and learn. The free online Teacher's Guide provides a scope and sequence, a yearlong timetable, getting-started activities, page-by-page guidance through the Big Book, and Buddy Book, free downloads and extension activities, help with assessment, and much more!

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.
