Product Description
This is a complete package of paper designed to accompany a basic "all about book" writing unit for young writers. Each paper has a checklist included right on it that students can use as a rubric to self monitor their writing. Included you will find:
- step by step images to help students understand how to write an all about book
- a booklet cover
- booklet paper
- a references printable page
- a large group checklist
- a peer checklist.

There is also a guide to using checklists in the classroom, a sample text to be used for guided or shared writing with BLANK lines, and the same book with sample text. You will receive photos of anchor charts and a pacing guide for the unit. Finally, I have included a student anchor chart with the entire process described in images and words. Students can keep this with them while they work!

The checklists in this unit help students to remember to include important informational text features in their work. This packet has a checklist including a title page, booklet pages with true information written on them, and a references page.

This is the BASIC version of this unit. If you feel that some or all of your students are ready to work with more informational text features, I have also created an advanced version of the "all about" books unit. The advanced unit adds a table of contents and headings to the checklist, and includes a variety of paper choices to allow students to experiment with text and image placement. Check it out here:

Information Text - All About Books Unit - ADVANCED

Having BOTH the Basic and Advanced units will allow you to easily differentiate instruction for a wide range of students in your class. With a process and images that are consistent, you will be able to meet all students' needs while maintaining a cohesive unit of instruction.

I have several other popular writing units with checklists. Get them all!
