I start off with a teaching slide on my smart board and we practice together. Then they work on notes and samples for interactive notebooks. Don't forget to make flaps! Last, I give them some independent practice that I may use for a daily grade.
These pages are included in my interactive writing notebooks. They are aligned to the Common Core standards. I am currently working on one without Common Core standards.
I also have Paragraph Writing where you can find these sheets as well. Happy Notebooking!!!!
