WHY STEP-BY-STEP WRITING®?

Scaffolding through the writing process continues to be an effective and successful approach to teach writing. Every lesson builds upon the previous skill within one piece of writing. This provides students with a thorough understanding of how to put a quality piece of writing together. It helps even the most reluctant writers become ROCKSTAR WRITERS™! One proven study shows that 98% of two classes using the program scored in the exceptional range on state testing. Now thousands of teachers are having the same success.

This resource is packed with ways to MOTIVATE-EDUCATE-DIFFERENTIATE! You will find your students engaged, have already prepped lessons for explicit teaching, and receive jammin’ ideas for differentiation.

What happens if you don’t have confidence in teaching writing?

No problem! After 26 years teaching in the classroom, a Masters Degree and National Board Certification, I now serve as a writing coach and curriculum designer. I created this all-inclusive STEP-BY-STEP WRITING® program to share my SECRET TO WRITING SUCCESS. I offer an exclusive Facebook Group to anyone with this writing program. It will guide and support you through a year of writing. If you are interested in detailed training, I also offer ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTWriting is my jam!

What teachers are buzzing about:

“You are an angel! Not only is this a spectacular resource but my students are constantly engaged. I’ve never used an interactive notebook type resource before and I am sold! The children are learning without realizing it and I have never had such success with narrative writing across so many students. I am pleasantly amazed. Looking forward to moving to the other text types as the year progresses (calendar year in Australia). Thank you so much!.” -Gemeni

“Excellent, comprehensive resource that has helped my students and me SO much! There’s NOTHING missing and it is very well planned and engaging! Thank you SO much, it has been a life-saver!” – Angela

Look no further! It is all here! If you are a new teacher, this resource is perfect. It is a STEP-by-STEP, user-friendly Interactive Writing Notebook with instructions on how to teach the skills! I can’t wait for you to join the band!

It covers all the Common Core Writing Standards and many Language Standards!:

W.1, W.1.a, W.1.b, W.1.c, W.1.d,

W.2, W.2.a, W.2.b, W.2.c, W.2.d

W.3, W.3.a, W.3.b, W.3.c, W.3.d, W.3.e,

W.4, W.5, W.6, W.7, W.8, W.9, W.10

L.1. a, L.1.b, L.1.c, L.1.d, L.1.e, L.1.f, L.1.g

L.2.a, L.2.b, L.2.c. L.2.d

What is the difference in this resource and the specific grade-level for 3, 4, 5?

This one is completely editable for those who need to change languages. It is also ideal for those who teach multiple grade levels. It is the only one that is digital for those grade levels.

Please note: If you want separate practice, model, prompts, assessments, and task cards for each of the 3 grade levels, it would be best to purchase each grade level separately. This one is one program, not a bundle of all 3 grade levels.
