35-Weeks of Emergent
Reading and Writing Lessons

The Emergent Reading Kit (ERK) is a complete reading and writing (spelling and handwriting) program that spans from learning the alphabet to reading decodable books and writing sentences. Utilize the free-online training course to successfully implement assessments, lesson plans, and mostly the explicit,
direct instruction strategies that teach children how to read and write at the Kinder and early First Grade levels. On completion of this kit, students will independently read and write 48-sight words and all short vowel CVC words utilizing their unique reading portfolio workbooks and decodable readers.

Nancy Fetzer's Grades K-1 Writing Curriculum

K-1 Writing Curriculum Manual

Implement emergent writing strategies and deliver the metacognitive skills necessary for students to segment and write unknown words, as well as to write sight words. Once these skills are mastered students then learn the explicit steps to write complete cohesive and coherent sentences, and finally powerful paragraphs. Utilize the plan, talk and write format that systematically and specifically instructs students through the writing process. During these lessons, students develop academic language through systematic writing instruction to plan, revise, and edit their writing.

2-3 Writing Curriculum Manual​

Engage all learners with a multi-sensory, explicit instructional writing program. During these lessons, students develop the skills to write succinct summaries and information, entertaining narratives, and convincing opinions. Engaging chants introduce the organization and purpose for the writing genres. Two simple, student-drawn organizers empower learners to plan their own writing without the crutch of duplicated organizers. Academic language rehearsals transform ideas from the organizer into sophisticated cohesive and coherent sentences and paragraphs.

4-6 Writing Curriculum Manual

Write sensational sentences, perfect paragraphs and exceptional essays. Engage all learners with a multi-sensory, explicit instructional writing program. Conduct systematic writing lessons to plan and organize ideas for succinct summaries and information, entertaining narratives, and convincing opinions and arguments. Streamline instruction by providing instant feedback for every student with the unique Plan, Talk and Write System that slowly releases students from highly-scaffolded lessons to independent writing.

K-6 Scope of Sequence

Nancy Fetzer highly suggests that administrators, teachers, and parents use the scope and sequence guide as a tool for schoolwide articulation, assessment benchmarks, and planning for narrative, informative/explanatory, and opinion/argumentative writing. Begin with the unique at-a-glance pages that display the organizers, brief descriptions, and suggested stages of writing matched to grade-levels. Advance to more detailed descriptions of the different writing stages, as well as exemplar organizers and writing samples to assess student writing, and determine teaching points for lessons.
