This is the Unit on Informational books. This lesson alligns with the Lucy Calkins Teacher's College The Writing and Reading Project 1st Grade writers workshop. I am in the process of creating a powerpoint for every writing lesson. There are currently 4 units complete By the end of the school year in May we will have every powerpoint that alligns to each lesson of each unit of study complete and available. My primary goal is to save other teachers the consuming time it takes to make the powerpoints. Our school is currently implementing the Lucy Calkins Writing and Readers Workshop. The powerpoints are a wonderful visual aids for students!
