Rock and Write

Rock and Write!  Rockin Resources is well known for our writing products.  Pam always liked to write and teach writing.  She has used numerous writing programs over her 26 years of teaching, but was never satisfied.  This led her to create her own writing program to use with her class.  Although she felt it was very effective, her thoughts turned into reality when her state scores came in and 98% of her class scored exemplary in writing!  Her principal asked her what she used for writing and she was hesitant to explain that she wasn't using the adopted writing program from the district.  That is when she realized it would benefit not just her class and her colleagues' classes, but why not put it in the hands of as many other teachers who are looking for an all-inclusive program that will rock test scores!  We offer year-long bundles for Grades 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.  We also have a 3-6 product in case you teach several grade levels!  It includes all the skills needed for grades 3-6.  Although it is Common Core aligned, it is not labeled with the CCSS.  This also helps those teachers who aren't teaching the CCSS but would like the awesome program!


Interactive Writing Notebooks- These can be used for notebooks or just instruction.  There are practice sheets to go with most of the lessons as well.  SECOND GRADE HAS BEEN ADDED!

We provide step-by-step plans, lessons, and creative ways to teach with or without interactive notebooks.  Your writing scores are guaranteed to skyrocket!

Product Description:  Our Interactive Writing Notebooks have been BEST SELLERS ON TPT! - They have hyperlinks to easily maneuver through the large  400 + document and mentor text for all the mini lessons!

This year-long Interactive Writing Notebook was designed to follow through the WRITING PROCESS and model lessons for Narrative Writing, Opinion Writing, and Informative Writing.  It covers ALL of the Writing Common Core Standards and many Language Standards. 

What is different about my product than other interactive writing notebooks?
There are teachable slides that can be used on the smart board or printed for posters, as well as slides already done for you to model good writing with your students, and student printables to go along with each mini lesson.  

In addition to the multitude of lessons, you will find independent practice, model writing, assessments, student resources, graphic organizers, tracking charts, forms, rubrics, dictionaries, labels, homework assignments, student resources etc etc.  All of these items come with directions and suggestions and are laid out in the ideal order to teach and be successful.
