Writing consists of speaking and listening, grammar, language, devloping various writing pieces, and using technology for writing.  I try to rotate units from writing pieces to grammar.  Students are not tested on the K-PREP test in Writing at this level; however, fourth grade is tested in grammar.  You may not receive a lot of writing pieces at home because students are asked to keep their pieces in their Writing Binders at school.  We sometimes visit their pieces again at the end of the year.
