This second semester book for approximately fourth grade level writers starts where 4-I left off. Students who do not need parts of speech review can begin right in with this Directed Writing Approach book.
It begins with a quick review of the five things a sentence must contain, recognizing complete paragraphs, sentence order for basic paragraphs, our Checklist Challenge tasks, double adjectives, similes and metaphors, and a paragraph is a unit of thought. Lots of hand-holding in this book takes the upper elementary student through the paragraph process, including fill-in-the-blank paragraph writing, question and answer outlines, question and answer paragraph, numbering steps for chronological paragraph writing, and more.
Projects in this book include our Sentence-by-Sentence (S-by-S) Outline From Given Material and Essay over insect traps, dogs with good memories, Clara Barton, wolves, and animals with character. Additionally, students will learn to put multiple paragraphs together for longer essays and reports (again, with our Directed Writing Approach) including letter writing, book report writing, picture essay writing, and much more. Your student will become a confident young writer!
