Essay Writing Flip Book

Product Description
The Essay Writing Flip Book is a resource that I created for my students for essay writing. Even when they have learned the basics of the essay, they soon forget important details. This guide is an ‘at a glance’ resource where students can quickly find the information they need so that they can concentrate on the bulk of their arguments.

The Flip Book contains: 

-Pre-writing: finding a topic, understanding it, writing a thesis statement
-Introduction writing: tips for writing and starting an intro, and proper format
-The body of the essay – paragraph format, how to build arguments, and other tips
-Quotations (2 pages) – how to use quotes in an essay, how to incorporate quotes, in text- citation using MLA format, etc.
-Transitions – how and why to use them, a list of commonly used transitional words and expressions
-MLA format
-Revision Checklist

8 pages of information in all!

It's teaching made easy!

FREE MISC. LESSON – “Feelings Journal”

by Mrs Beattie’s Classroom

2nd – 5th Grade

Thinking about how we feel and focusing on the positive aspects of our day can be huge motivators to write. We can provide our students with the opportunity and motivation to do this by encouraging them to think about the most positive parts of their day, and helping them to let go of some of the smaller problems they’ve faced.

This package contains five different journal page options (in both genders, and with a Canadian spelling option included) that can be printed a page at a time or bound into a diary as seen in the thumbnail photos. I hope you and your students enjoy using this!
