This is a year-long unit will give your sweeties a chance to grow an appreciation for different authors, as well as enhance their writing skills! This unit will give your class a chance to celebrate a different author each month, and the chance to learn new and exciting facts about the people that wrote some of their favorite books! Contents of this unit include:
*An "Awesome Author" reference poster
* A Folder cover you can attach to the front of a binder/folder, or simply bind together with string once students have completed each page.
*Four general response pages to be filled out for each author each month
*Instructions, references, and materials for planning an extremely fun and special parent-involvement activity!
You can use this unit as much or as little as you want throughout the school year, and after studying all the different authors and different styles of writing, all activities will lead up to the month of May, in which your sweeties will get a chance to be authors themselves, which will end with a fun parent-involvement activity at the end of the year! I hope you enjoy this unit in your classroom as much as I do in mine! :)
