Building Writers (F)
Fifth grade students practice three writing styles:
- Narrative: Students write a story with a clear sequence of events; introduce a narrator and characters; include dialogue and description; use details to effectively communicate the experiences of characters and events; use words and phrases to show the order of events; and write a conclusion
- Information: Students clearly introduce the topic; organize related information into logical paragraphs or sections; write facts, definitions, and details about the topic; use quotations and concrete details to develop the topic; include topic-specific vocabulary; connect ideas with linking words and phrases; and write a conclusion
- Opinion: Students write an introduction that clearly states an opinion; write ideas and supporting reasons in an organized structure; write supporting reasons with facts and details, connect an opinion and supporting reason with linking words; and write a conclusion.
These workbooks from Learning without Tears, are created to give children structured practice in core writing skills. Each workbook focuses on three writing types: narrative, information and opinion. Each workbook's content is developmentally appropriate and scaffolded to progressively move students toward stronger understanding and greater independence in writing. Each workbook also contains templates at the end of each section for further practice. Workbooks include a brief overview of the course and each of the writing topics are introduced and taught. See the publisher's web site for a teacher's guide to use these in a classroom. See leveled books for more information on content and style. 86 pgs, pb. ~ Deanne
