First Grade Non-Fiction Writing Curriculum (Lucy Calkins Inspired)
Product Description
We can teach about the world! Students learn to write their own science or social studies topic based non-fiction chapter books to teach others. They will learn to use non-fiction features such as bold words and diagrams to elaborate their writing. This unit is aligned to the National Common Core Standards and Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Choose from 26 lessons for your first grade class. Each lesson is paired with a premade student friendly anchor chart. The charts are differentiated for English-language learners, at-risk students and students with special needs.

This is the third unit in a series of monthly units.
