Who, What, Where, When, Why.
Thank you for coming today!! Your presentation was great! I am very excited to finally have a curriculum to follow.
In the past, we did not have a curriculum that was school wide. When our students came in, they all brought various programs with them.
It took a lot of work to get everyone on the same page. Now, this will not be the problem with all grade levels teaching the same method. Thank you so much. Teacher at Romeo Elementary "all I can say is wow! Being a new teacher I have found that writing is a tough subject to teach, and engage students.
I struggled with finding a way to get students to enjoy writing.
After attending your training and hearing other teachers speak of how wonderful the program is I was super excited. The way it is structured offers an easy way for me to teach writing as well as an easy way for my students to understand the writing process.
Thank you so much for offering this program to teachers. I'm so glad Top Score is out there to help us teach writing on informational texts and opinions, and how to pull information and evidence from the texts! Teacher at Ward Highlands Elementary "I was impressed! I used Top Score for the fist time last year, and I was impressed!
The stories that the students read to use in their writing were of high interest.
I was easily able to incorporate this program into my day due to the variety of reading pieces. Top Score also emailed updated lessons and tips throught the school year! The lessons are very easy to follow and the kids are constantly engaged every lesson.
Your trainings, Lisa, are great as well! I also love the fact that you send email updates about information and update lessons when needed.
As well as a fantastic review before the test. Last year, I did get a chance to do the Write Around The Room lesson and the students were fully engaged and loved it! Anything to get out of their seats sometimes. Thanks again for everything!
The program helped me tremendously, as I teach 5th grade and had to prepare my students for the FSA Writing. I have always felt that teaching writing was an area needing improvement. Top Score Writing helped me become a better writing teacher through structured lessons and online support.
Would strongly recommend this program to anyone!Informational Writing unit ideas and anchor charts. FREE template for an all about ladybugs book.
