    Help students boost their written communication skills with Getting to the Core of Writing workbooks! This series is designed to fulfill two objectives: to teach writing as an essential part of literacy development and to provide teachers with a clear way to support the Common Core State Standards for writing.

    Focusing on the traits of quality writing: ideas, sentence fluency, organization, word choice, voice, and conventions, 7-12 lessons on each trait are taught through a variety of writing assignments, graphic organizer helps, and reading connections. Weekly lessons are broken down into multiple stages, including a mini-lesson, writing practice time, and sharing time. Each lesson includes a standard, materials needed, "mentor texts," procedure notes, teaching instructions with semi-scripted questions, assignments, homework ideas, and reproducibles.

    This Grade 1 text covers topics such as sentence fluency, writing letters, editing, ideas from literature, and more.

    288 reproducible pages, softcover. A Teacher's CD-ROM with reproducible resources and student activity pages is included. This course covers a full year; a suggested pacing guide is included. Grade 1.

    Homeschoolers should be aware that this book suggests readings from an extensive (8-page) booklist of titles.
