The Writing Intervention Toolkit: Grow Your Writers with 72 Lessons!

Are your elementary students struggling in writing? The Writing Intervention Toolkit for Narrative Writing includes 72 lessons that make planning for small groups easy! Review writing with a rubric, plan your intervention strategies, use graphic organizers, and help students in prewriting, planning, drafting, revising, and editing their personal narratives or creative writing. Includes the printables and pictures to help you work with students effectively! Writing is probably the hardest thing to teach.

*science teachers everywhere are rolling their eyes*

But it's true. Every writer is different and they all need special instruction to grow their writing authentically.
 
You feel overwhelmed trying to meet everybody's needs while still managing the class and moving kids forward.

You have to assess writing, figure out strengths and weaknesses, identify the best way to address them - whole group or small group, find the strategy that will be most effective, deliver the lessons, provide the feedback, monitor students' progress, assess more writing, and do it all again.

It's a lot! And it's only one small part of your job, especially if you teach all content areas like I did.
 
Who has time to do all of that from scratch? It's exhausting.

So I created something based on my years of working with students in writing that is especially made for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade teachers who are helping their students grow their narrative writing skills.


 The Narrative Writing Intervention Toolkit is for...
  • the teacher who realizes that the whole group lessons are working for many kids, but not for all of them. 
  • the teacher or specialist who is planning tutoring or Saturday School 
  • the teacher or specialist who is preparing students for a state test in narrative writing
  • the teacher who spends hours looking at student writing without a plan of what to do next.
  • The teacher who is told to "differentiate" and provide "small group instruction" but isn't given the support to get started.
  • the teacher who has so many kids that they're overwhelmed when they have to figure out who needs what.
  • the instructional coach or literacy coach who is supporting teachers who are stuck when it comes to teaching writing

Review writing with a rubric, plan your intervention strategies, use graphic organizers, and help students in prewriting, planning, drafting, revising, and editing their personal narratives or creative writing.

In this writing intervention resource, I share the tools you need to pinpoint what students need to grow as writers and to give targeted lessons that actually get their brains and pencils moving...instead of staring at a blank page.

As an elementary school teacher, I worked with a lot of students who didn't like to write, and a lot of students who enjoyed writing, but who needed specific teaching to help their writing improve. My colleagues used to ask, "What are you doing?" because my kids became proficient, joyful writers. Well, this is what I was doing!

Later, when I became an instructional coach, I realized exactly how challenging it is for teachers to communicate with students about their writing, and find lessons that actually make a difference in the students' writing.

By using Writer's Workshop practices, the writing process, and building targeted intervention lessons, I've put together one resources that will meet so many needs in your classroom!
