I just created a Year Long Thematic Writing Unit. The unit is broken down into ten school months (September-June). Each month has a list of words for students to use when practicing writing. They can use the thematic words provided to help them write sentences, paragraphs, and/or stories related to each month. These activities can be done as a whole class or during station/center time. I have included three different response sheets (writing paper) to use depending on the developmental stage of your students.
