With down and dirty writing lessons that cut to the chase, this is a great resource for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade teachers. Simple lessons using student writing as examples. These lessons cover helping kids not write bed to bed, how to write a paragraph, editing, using good word choices, and showing not telling. As a reading coach I have even used this book for main idea lessons. I highly recommend this book! Betty in Haltom City
