You’ll love Giant Write Every Day because it:
- supports 6-Trait writing. Activities are designed to build skills in each trait — ideas, organization, word choice, sentence fluency, voice, and conventions. And a trait-based writing guide at the beginning of the book makes it easy to see exactly which skills are being developed.
- helps you differentiate instruction. With such a wide variety of topics and skills covered, it’s easy to match activities to your students’ individual learning levels and interests.
- inspires reluctant writers. Motivating topics and delightful illustrations make writing fun! Writing prompts are grade-appropriate and are often based on seasonal events that relate to students’ lives.
- strengthens writing fluency. Quickwrites, writing prompts, and sentence starters provide students with freewriting opportunities.
- can be used for independent practice. Writing forms provide guided writing experiences students can complete on their own.
- is correlated to state standards.
12 monthly sections contain multiple types of activities:
- 300 Quickwrites that develop writing fluency. Fun topics, such as On the School Bus, It Makes Me Laugh, or Ten Reasons to Stay Up Late, inspire students to write and also provide writing selections for writing workshop sessions.
- Story Starters and Titles to help students produce longer, more complete stories. Instead of wasting time staring at a blank page, students’ creativity is supported by motivating ideas that help focus their writing.
- 141 Writing Forms that provide practice using different forms of writing. With so many kinds of writing to choose from, it’s easy to support students’ different writing levels and abilities.
Additional resources include a trait-based writing guide, instructions for creating a writing folder, a list of writing experiences, and a reproducible “Writing Is…” poem.
