This STEP-BY-STEP WRITING® IS A COMPLETE WRITER’S WORKSHOP PROGRAM with all the tools needed for the entire year. It is filled with standard-based engaging lessons (scripted), anchor charts, modeling, mentor text, interactive notebook pages, practice, and all the forms, graphic organizers, checklists, and rubrics necessary to teach and assess writing. It has been proven to be effective in thousands of classrooms.

Do you have reluctant writers?

No worries! They will beg you to write! Over the years, I’ve perfected it to motivate students and improve their writing by leaps and bounds! A scaffolding approach helps students understand how writing builds from basic sentence structure to a polished essay. Every lesson builds upon the previous skill within one piece of writing. This gives students a thorough understanding of how to put a quality piece of writing together. It helps even the most reluctant writers become ROCKSTAR WRITERS®! One study shows that 98% of two classes using the program scored in the exceptional range on state testing. Another study shows one teacher’s class excels in the top 3 classes in her district of 8 elementary schools. 

Do you need more confidence when you teach writing?

This program is for you! The scripted lessons are thoroughly laid out to make you a ROCKSTAR 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. I have 26 years of teaching experience, a Masters’s Degree, and National Board Certification. I currently work on curriculum and serve as a writing coach. This all-inclusive STEP-BY-STEP writing program was created so I can share my SECRET TO WRITING SUCCESS with you! If you need help using the program, no problem! I am active in a FREE exclusive Facebook Group just for you and other teachers or homeschool parents using the program. It will guide and support you through a year of writing. If you want detailed training, I also offer ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT to accompany the programs.

What teachers are buzzing about:

What is the difference between grade levels and combination bundles?

Each grade level has different mentor text, modeled stories, practice, task cards, prompt cards, etc. Many anchor charts and interactive pages are consistent with the surrounding grade levels due to the similar writing standards. 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 who do not use common core and teach multiple grade levels.

Do you have limited time for writing instruction? Would you like to use this program without the interactive pages?

No problem! This program is flexible! You can teach the lessons, print off the mini anchor charts to put in student notebooks in place of the interactive pages, then have time for students to write their own stories!


If you need a digital Step-By-Step program, we have you covered! It was created for Google and Powerpoint. It has the same scaffolding and process as the printable PDF version but is interactive and saves paper!
