Leveled Resources to Teach Kids the Five Steps of the Writing Process

Process Writing Lessons teach students the five steps of the writing process through the four main writing genres:
  • informative/explanatory
  • narrative
  • opinion/argument
  • transactional
Each genre is divided into several text-type lessons at four developmental writing levels (beginning, early developing, developing, and fluent), which ensures your instruction matches the range of skills and abilities of writers typically found in grades one through six.
