Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Compare and Contrast : Using measurement to get there - Section 4: Expand


This is the first step in showing the students how important our writing skills will become in science. I lead the students through this phase carefully and scaffold this practice all year.  I do not release the locus of control with this writing too soon. Up to this point in their educational career, Second Graders have not had much practice with science.  I value the careful and thoughtful planning that goes into modeling and demonstrating the need to integrate and blend the CCSS ELA standards in writing with the Next Generation Standards.
