PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for an engaging lesson plan to teach the IDEAS TRAIT (6 traits of writing) to your Kinder and 1st grade students? Then our units, each based on a specific Trait of Writing and aligned to the Common Core, are a perfect starting place. Each of these units uses a mentor text as a basis and then expands into a specific form (mode) of writing. However, what makes our units different is that all activities are research-based. Not only do we design activities that work, we tell you what the research tells us about these types of activities.

In this unit we use two related mentor texts, "Not a Box" and "Not a Stick", both by the wonderfully talented Antoinette Portis, to teach the following standards:
W.K.2 Use combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informational/explanatory texts....
W.1.2 Write informative/explanatory texts....
W.K.5 and W.1.5 Adding details to writing

The three lessons in this unit follow a format of 1) a modeled read with an explicit instructional focus; 2)Collaborative Student Engagement; and 3) Independent Student Practice with multiple activities. Each activity is comprehensive and includes specific directions to the teacher, helpful hints, and a ready-to-use reproducible.

Please note: the mentor texts are not included in these lessons. Teachers can easily find these books in most school libraries. We also have a link to each book on our Amazon Associates website at www.denovolearning.org. Your purchase of books from our site does not cost you anything extra and allows us to purchase more books house for unit development. Thanks!
