Use nonfiction to teach students about apples! I used a book called "Amazing Apples" by Jeff Bauer, but you can use any nonfiction apple book to go along with the guided writing. I've left these documents editable, so that you can change whatever you need to in order to make this work for your class.
This mini-unit has two days worth of guided handouts, and four pages of primary writing paper. Two of the pages have sentence frames in addition to primary lines. One page has a labeled diagram of an apple, and another page has a box for students to draw a picture under their writing. I use a rubric for students to check their sentences, and I call it "The Sentence Rules."
You can use this lesson in-class or give it to students as homework, since the first page explains the learning targets. I've included links parents and teachers can use to extend learning. I designed this for use with my ELL students, though the primary writing pages include sentence frames appropriate for all primary students.
