A Typical Day of Writing:

Mini Lesson: The unit includes 40 lesson plans with a suggested mini lesson. Many of the lessons include the use of mentor text (passages that are included in the unit) and anchor charts. Teacher versions of the anchor charts are included in the unit so that the teacher can project them and fill them out with the class or print them and display in the classroom. Small black-and-white versions are included for the students to fill out and keep in their writing notebooks as a reference.

Work Time: Students will be applying the skill from the mini lesson into their writing each day. At the end of the unit, they will have completed two full masterpieces and many other independent writings.

Share Time: Lesson plans include a specific task for students each day that allows them to share some piece of their writing with a partner or with the class.
