How does it work?

Daily Lesson Plans Are Fully Editable

  • Formal lesson plans will be provided from August-May. Each month's lessons are in unit form and can be used other months of the year. For example, if you start school in September, you can easily use the unit marked for August.
  • Daily lesson plans are added to the membership at least 30 days prior to the month listed on the calendar. 
  • Additional membership content is added each month to our growing library of bonus lessons, grammar lessons, tools, and training.  
  • Each grade level has different lesson plans and models, so you don't have to worry about students repeating lessons if multiple grade levels at your school use the program. There is a consistent progression from one grade level to the next, connecting all included grade levels.

Frequently Asked Questions

We use the Common Core State Standards to align each grade level's lesson plans and activities. While most writing standards are pretty universal, it's a good idea to look at the lessons once you join to make sure they align well with your standards if you don't use CCSS. If they don't align, you can cancel your membership for a full refund within 7 days of purchase.

The membership is built to fit into a variety of schedules, and all units can be easily molded to your start and end dates. Formal lesson plans will be provided from August 1-May 31. Additional content will be provided for those who are in school during months that do not have coverage. Some examples of this content are: bonus lessons, extra prompts, and grammar resources. These will be available for you throughout the year to fill any gaps or use for other purposes. All lesson plans are given weekly, so you can easily move lessons on your calendar around your individual school breaks and start/end dates.

No, these lesson plans are custom made for this membership. We make all of our calendars and lessons specifically for the month and year you will be using them. Additional resources and some handouts included may be similar to tried and true resources in my TpT store.

We recommend at least 40 minutes each day for a full lesson (including student writing time), but you can easily spend more time on each lesson if you have a longer writing block. Lessons can also be split in half if you. The daily lesson plans and most student organizers are editable. We've built in several layers of flexibility to make sure these lessons work in most classrooms.

Yes! We continue to add materials to the membership each month. We send our members monthly emails to tell them what we've added to the membership for the upcoming month. You will see upcoming materials on the "Coming Soon" section of the Member Dashboard.
