PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

READY TO TEACH - Just open it up and start to teach!

Informational Writing - COMPLETE BUNDLE - 15 sessions - 3rd - 5th Grade - SMART NOTEBOOK version (there is a PDF version available).

Please note: This particular unit does not precisely follow the plan set out by Lucy Calkins in her A CURRICULAR PLAN FOR THE READING WORKSHOP, GRADE 5, 2011–2012 and is really just our own way of developing a 3rd grade unit for Informational Writing. Some of the teaching points were borrowed from a lot of different sources. In any case, for any of the anchor charts, complete lesson details, and digital resources, you will need to purchase the Calkins units. This is not meant to be a replacement, only a presentation supplement.

This is the complete bundle of all the SMART Board presentations - from Lesson 1 through Lesson 12 (see below).

NOTE: Session 05 was originally written, but subsequently scrapped. There are only 15 sessions.

NOTE: This unit is available in PDF or SMART Notebook versions. You only need to look through my products to find the version you want. I have priced both the same - even though the PDF version is not editable. I spent the same amount of time creating both versions and, in fact, had to go through an extra step to create the PDF.

NOTE: There are many Calkins units of studies that I have created in the same format for Reading and Writing for 3rd and 5th grade (the grades I have taught): These units are either available now or will be by August 15, 2016: Make sure to “follow” me and I will be sending out updates as more become available. But check back often, too, as sellers are only able to send out updates to buyers once a month.

This is a SMART Board presentation (only) for this lesson. You must have SMART Board software to open and use this presentation. These lessons are editable in SMART Notebook.

The lessons follow the Workshop structure of Connection, Teaching Point, Teaching, Active Engagement, Independent Work, and Share. Each of these sections have a different background color and are identified on most slides in the upper right portion of the slide.

Because many of the components are visual and the verbiage is written on the screen, this is ideal for classrooms with hearing impaired or deaf students. Interpreters will be grateful because they can point to the the words and get a break from signing.

NOTE: The preview and thumbnails are just a FEW slides from one session of this unit, but all the files follow the same format with Connection, Teaching, Active Engagement, Link, MidWorkshop Teaching Point, and Share.

Comments and questions are always appreciated.
