Do you have reluctant writers?

No worries! They will beg you to write! Through my 26 years of teaching, I struggled to find the right fit for my students. I had so many reluctant writers. That is why I decided to create my own writing program. Over the years, I’ve perfected it to not only motivate students, but to improve their writing by leaps and bounds!

Do you lack confidence when you teach writing?

This program is for you! The scripted lessons are thoroughly laid out to make you a ROCK STAR in your classroom! It is a comprehensive resource aligned to Common Core with everything you need for your writing workshop. Whether you are a new teacher or a veteran teacher looking for an effective approach, you will find many gems in this resource. If for any reason you need help, I am just an email away! I have been a writing coach for several years and will guide you through the writing process!

What is the difference between grade levels and combination bundles?

Each grade level has different mentor text, modelled stories, practice, task cards, prompt cards, etc. Many anchor charts and interactive pages are consistent with the surrounding grade levels due to the writing standards being so similar. Repetition has proven to be a successful strategy in education. As students go through the writing process each year, they have a better chance to retain the skills necessary to write a quality essay.

The combination bundles are editable and have generic standards. They are ideal for bilingual teachers, those not using common core, and those who teach multiple grade levels.
