We can learn to write like our favorite authors! This is our second unit from a series of writing workshop curriculum. In this unit, students will revisit narrative writing (We are Story Tellers / Small Moments), but this time they will be using crafts from best selling authors such as Mo Willems to make their writing interesting. The unit is inspired by Lucy Calkin's Authors as Mentor / Scenes to Stories narrative writing.
This curriculum is aligned to the National Common Core Standards and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Choose from 25 anchor charts that are student friendly. The charts are differentiated for English-language learners, at-risk students and students with special needs. Show charts on your SmartBoard, make class set copies to put in student's writing folder, or draw an identical one on a big chart paper.
