Patterns of Power Plus

Extension Lessons for Young Writers

Most day-to-day grammar instruction is about finding one right answer and identifying mistakes rather than uncovering and appreciating writing’s beauty and meaning. Through a unique process of invitation, teachers can use Patterns of Power Plus: Extension Lessons for Young Writers to teach grammar authentically with flexibility through rich literature and quality conversations—without worksheets!

Program Components

There are five main components to Patterns of Power Plus: Teacher’s Guide, Lesson Display Flip Chart, Student Notebooks, Focus Phrase Cards, and Companion Website. The sensibly organized components work together to provide all of the ready-to-go materials needed to start growing grammar knowledge in the classroom.

Teacher’s Guide
The Teacher’s Guide provides all the planning and information you need to implement daily 10-minute grammar and convention lessons in your classroom.

Lesson Display Flip Chart
The Lesson Display pages act as the visual support for your lessons. This easel-style, dry-erasable chart is ready to use in a small group or to be projected for the entire class and displays the content needed at each phase of the Patterns of Power Plus lessons. 

Student Notebooks
The Patterns of Power Student Notebook provides a structure for students to capture their conversation and learning as they work through the invitational process and develop their understandings of grammar and conventions. These notebooks give students a record of the conventions and grammar lessons they accumulate over the year, as well as a reference point to revisit for clarification. Includes 25 notebooks. (Also available as a separate purchase in 5 and 25 packs.)

Focus Phrase Cards
To save valuable time, these essential focus phrases are preprinted on sturdy cards for easy display once the pattern that aligns to the focus phrase is established.

Companion Website
The Patterns of Power Plus Companion Website includes bonus lessons and videos, FAQs, additional resources, and Patterns of Power Facebook Community Access where you can connect with other Patterns of Power Plus users to share stories or seek support. 

You can also download the Patterns of Power Plus brochure here. View the Patterns of Power Plus lesson sampler.
