Here’s what teachers are saying:

✏️ “I really appreciate the margin notes and checklists to keep kids on track and help them self-assess throughout the process. The handouts even come with a section that lets them track their progress through the writing process. This is something I was not sure how to manage when I was in the classroom before distance learning began, and I am so excited to have a product that is so organized and includes information that promotes students’ independence during our writing block. I am excited to use this next year.” -Shantrell C.

✏️ “This has been a great tool to use with my students. I recently found out this is something my third grade team has been using, so it has been nice to have consistency within the building. Plus I bought both 1-2 and 3-4, so I can differentiate for my 3/4 grade students.” -Emilie U.

✏️ “These writing prompts and organizers are an awesome resource for developing writing skills. I used them in class at school, and am so happy they are now digital so I can continue using them as we transition to remote learning. The different pages provided for each step in the writing process are really awesome.” -Drew H.

75 reviews for Paragraph Writing of the Week – Differentiation Bundle for Grades 2-3

  1. The Gilded Classroom

    Loved the way the writing process is broken down. easy to use. Thanks!

  2. Jennifer Nieradka

    I’ve been using this resource to help students build their ideas and organize their writing. The prompts are engaging, I absolutely love the format of the graphic organizer and the variety of options available. It’s been a great success in my interventions.

  3. Rachel P.

    I use these all the time in my classroom, at least once a week. It is great that it is already differentiated.

  4. Teaching Young Hearts and Minds

    My students really struggle with writing in general. Writing a paragraph? Forget it! I decided to make it simpler and buy this resource. Even though I teach 4th grade I used the 2nd grade one because my students are so low. They really enjoy it and I love the way they feel more confident when they write!

  5. Rahima D.

    I love that there’s so many topics to choose form that are relevant to what kids can connect to. I also appreciate the differentiated sheets; some of my Grade 5’s still need the dotted lines because they print larger but it was nice that they were doing the exact same assignment as the rest of the group.

  6. BobbiJo G.

    excellent resource for paragraph writing – side notes are very helpful to support student learning and checking in as they go with their writing – the benefit of the bundle is that I have students at various levels in the same grade and this resource allows them all to participate and saves me time from having to find or create comparable activities – worth the purchase!

  7. Denise W.

    I used this to help support my ELL students and build stronger writing skills. The students were very engaged and loved writing about their favorite animal! I’m super excited to use more of these for my groups! Thank you for sharing such an amazing product!

  8. Tyler B.

    I LOVE THIS SO MUCH> My kids’ writing skills are LOW this year due to extended online learning and I am loving how this resource breaks it down so well for them and me. I am absolutely loving it.

  9. Brittney M.

    I love this packet so much. It is so helpful to have weekly paragraph writings ready to go and put in my lesson plans. The kids love them, too, and it is so helpful that there are ways to use this with all of my students!

  10. Charles V.

    Just what I was looking for to help my students with the writing process for paragraphs.
