Hooked on Writing April explores the world of poetry through the lens of the Earth. Students will learn about different kinds of poems as well as environmental information. Students will learn the rhythm and flow of poetry through word choice, beats, and alliteration.

Hooked on Writing is your writing "how to" resource. As teachers we want to "hook" our students into loving the craft of writing. We want them to be engaged, motivated and successful. This writing series will take you through the elements of a great writing program step by step. (Special Introductory price for each Unit as they are released will be $10.00 until the final release.)

This program is suitable for anyone teaching using the Write Traits and/or CCSS and has alternate spelling as well.

This unit is JAM PACKED with ideas to teach writing every day of the month.

This set includes:

★Setting up for success.
★ Strategies for developing ideas for poems.
★ Fun writing activities including collaboration as a whole class to develop anchor charts together.
★ Discussion and sharing activities to develop oral language skills.
★ A HUGE variety of activities and writing assignments such as poems (concrete, free, haiku),as well as review from the earlier in the year on paragraph writing and how-to writing.
★4 Mentor texts titles with lesson plans and matching activities that are designed to interest even your most unmotivated students because the activities are not all writing based but transfer over to writing.
