Grade 1 - New Ontario 2023 Language Curriculum – Composition: Expressing Ideas and Creating Texts Strand. This resource covers all expectations and learning goals in the Grade 1, 2023 Ontario Language Curriculum – Composition: Expressing Ideas and Creating Texts Strand.

 There are 391 activity sheets that are aligned to cover all expectations in the NEW Ontario 2023 Language Curriculum. Included are 10 blocks of content, each covering a different text form. Within each block, the overall and specific expectations are met.

 This is a language program developed by a language teacher. We have included exemplars for students to formulate success criteria so they can improve their writing quality. Moreover, we’ve chunked the progressions involved with producing quality writing to ensure all students can progress.

 Included in this unit are the overall expectations:

D1. Developing Ideas and Organizing Content: hands-on activities, group work, and many independent work opportunities to develop these skills

 D2. Creating Texts – printing practice and writing assignments

 D3. Publishing, Presenting, and Reflecting – group work revision activities, success criteria, and rubrics as well as opportunities for students to present and reflect on their work.
