Complete children's book unit plan for students to write their own children's literature. Includes lesson plans, bilingual handouts, worksheets, graphic organizers, SMART Board presentations, rubrics, suggested teaching schedule, and sample field trip forms. All documents are editable in Microsoft Word to best fit your students' needs. Documents are also created in two versions: one in English and one in Spanish for any beginner ELLs.
This unit took my 6th grade ESL class about twelve 90-minute lessons, but I think it could be expanded if you'd like. We culminated the unit with a field trip to a local elementary school where we exchanged stories. There are 72 pages and 44 slides included here. A ton of hard work went into creating this unit, so I promise there is some great stuff here!
