Write One invites first graders to explore writing, reading, and learning through page after colorful page. Your students will meet new friends and write alongside them, creating lists, messages, letters, and other personal forms. Then they will branch out to subject writing, research writing, and stories and poems.
Students learn to write through engaging activities in these welcoming sections in Write One:
- The Process of Writing helps your students plan, write, revise, check, and publish.
- The Forms of Writing shows your students how to write descriptions, alphabet books, reports, poems, and much more.
- The Tools of Learning teaches all-important reading skills as well as essential skills for listening, speaking, and cooperating.
- The Proofreader’s Guide helps your students with sentences, punctuation, capitalization, usage, high-frequency words, and more.
- The Student Almanac guides young writers in math, geography, handwriting, and computers, as well as teaching high-frequency theme words.
A free online Write One Teacher's Guide will walk you through the student handbook, giving advice for using each part in your classroom. You'll also find free document downloads, related minilessons, additional student models, and more. And the Teacher's Guide correlates the handbook to the Common Core State Standards, connecting you to even more resources.
Also, check out the Write One SkillsBook, which teaches punctuation, capitalization, mechanics, grammar, usage, and spelling.
