CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.W.4.4

:
"Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience."

Our Take: In fourth grade, students should try various styles of writing for various audiences. Teachers should assign a wide range of writing activities (short fictional stories, scripts, personal essays, informational reports, opinion pieces, etc.) and help students understand the different demands of each.

These worksheets can help students practice this Common Core State Standards skill.
