4th Grade - Daily Writing Ready® Full Year

4th Grade - Daily Writing Ready® Full Year


The program is designed so that all ELA TEKS are covered during the first 20 weeks (August – February week 2) of instruction. In week 21 (February week 3), the daily lessons will evolve into short STAAR-formatted passages with 2 revising & editing multiple-choice questions each day on Monday-Thursday. The Friday assessments for weeks 21-34 will include a slightly longer STAAR-formatted passage with 10 revising & editing multiple-choice questions and an optional expository writing prompt. A 26-lined written composition paper is included, as well as a rubric for grading the essay. The program is designed so that all 4th grade ELA TEKS are covered and reviewed before the STAAR Writing Test; the daily lessons & assessments after the STAAR test will continue to review the 4th grade ELA skills until the end of the school year.

  • How it Works:
    Monday – Thursday, students will practice language & writing skills in 10-15 minute daily lessons:

    •2 sentence-editing exercises
    •2-3 language/vocabulary exercises
    •1 sentence-diagramming exercise
    •1 exit ticket (a short, 1-2 minute formative assessment linked to the objective of that day’s lessons)

    On Friday, students will complete a brief, 1-page formal assessment measuring their understanding of the skills taught during the week. An optional study guide is provided also to give to students on Monday before the test so that parents can work with their children at home throughout the week.
