Writing in First Grade

  • We use the Advancing Literacy program to teach writing in First Grade. Throughout all four units, students work on planning, drafting, spelling, editing, revising and sharing. First graders explore several writing genres in the following units:


    • Unit 1: Small Moments


    • Unit 2: How-To

    • Unit 3: Topic Books


    • Unit 4: Writing Reviews


    • Unit 5: From Scenes to Series: Writing Fiction



    Writing is a special time where students express themselves and write about what matters to them! They incorporate everything they are learning in reading and phonics to become stronger writers.
