Writing to the Core…Common Core That Is

It is going to be short and sweet for me today, friends! I have SO much to finish in my classroom and this is my last day that I will be able to work in my room for the next week! {WHY am I not there yet?!?}

I did want to share my newest unit with you. It is called Writing to the Core and is a content writing word wall for grades 1-3.


I don’t know if it is just me, but I truly feel that content walls really drive home essential skills. This word wall encourages self-questioning strategies through planning, revising, and editing that will build students towards becoming independent writers. I do not have a picture of my wall, because this is something that we build as we go! Instead, here is a look at the cards that transform one of the walls in my room into one of the best sources of information for my kids!


This pack also includes additional resources to reinforce the parts of speech that will be introduced in each grade level!

The complete set is designed in bright colors so that it will match any classroom theme!



You can pick this up at my TPT shop anytime! I am off to print, laminate, paint….and the list goes on! Wish me luck! ;)

I'm a publisher of Learn Your Christmas Carols Blog with more than 25,000 visitors. I've published lyrics and videos to nearly 100 different popular, traditional, funny and obscure holiday songs. This year, I will include links on Christmas recipes. Is there any content you would like to contribute with me? The only thing you would do is a link back in your sidebar or footer. If you are interested just email me at juliegallaher@gmail.com or tweet me at http://twitter.com/juliegallaher. I'm looking forward to your positive response. Thanks!
