Perfect Paragraphs for President's Day

This week we will be reading and writing about Abraham Lincoln. Then next week, on to George Washington. I can hardly wait to see my kiddos finished products. Especially after the successful pieces they wrote about Martin Luther King, Jr. a couple of weeks ago. Just take a peek at a few of them. I could have shown them ALL! Each child's was different, yet all very impressive - especially for only being 1/2 way through first grade. I am so proud of my wonderful students!

Ok... time to get back on track. In preparation for the next two weeks of writing, I modified some old writing templates I had created a few years ago. 

The 16-page pdf file includes:
Word Banks
Was, Had, Did pages for recording research
Drafting Templates for a 7 sentence paragraph
An Informational Writing Checklist 
and a ...Report Cover and Publishing Paper
The entire packet is absolutely FREE 
and is available now in my TpT store. 
Click HERE or the colored graphic above to grab it. 

Happy Writing!
