In my classroom Writing is one of my pull-out groups.  I typically have a group of three-four students during this time.  We all sit at one of the tables and I begin by modeling what good writing looks like.  I then review with each student what they have been working on from the previous day.  We begin by always writing our words first.  Some of my students are able to sound out the words on their own, some need verbal cues from me, and some utilize our alphabet visuals to help them. The following observation sheet has helped me organize my observations.  Click on the picture to download it for free!


We have been working on writing Three- Part stories with a beginning, middle, and end.  We have also been writing How To Stories.  Click on the picture below to get my Writing Stories Template.writing
