There is a rather long discussion topic concerning a CAFE Menu for Writing. I created, with my colleague Lisa Avila, a writing menu using the writing acronymn CORE: Content, Organization, Revision, Editing. We created it for 1st and 2nd grades, based on our state standards and the CCSS.  Many of you have asked for a copy of this document.  

If you'd like to have a copy of our CORE Writing Menu created by Lisa Avila and myself, complete the Google Form at the link below, and I'll send it your way. Thank you for your interest in our work. Please come back and reply below to share your feedback and how you use this document!

Request a copy.

Disclaimer:  The Daily CAFE team allowed us to use the menu format, but the content is solely base on our interpretation of the Common Core Writing Standards and our own state standards.
