FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Quick Easy Writing Template FREEBIE!!!”

by Beautiful Mathematics
2nd – 5th Grade

This effective take-home writing template is simply structured with a line for both the title and the author followed by space for a drawing or diagram and lines for the actual body of writing. It works for pretty much any type of writing (creative, narrative, etc.) and any topic (even math and science!). Bonus points for creative math writing. 🙂

For differentiation, if students cannot completely write their ideas in words, the teacher can assist with the writing while the student focuses on the sketch. Alternatively, students may attempt to write out what they intend to do and the teacher will make the necessary corrections. It’s really up to you! Make it work for your class.

I hope you find this writing template useful. Enjoy!
