ULTIMATE WRITING BUNDLE CCSS Anchor Charts and Generic Topic Writing Templates
I designed this "mostly simple" generic informational and explanatory writing unit to fit universal nonfiction text writing needs. I hope that you find the unit general enough to fit the needs of writing about any nonfiction topic.
I have also included a png template for each of the instructional pages and an anchor poster to allow you the freedom of inserting your own text within your word processing program.
I encourage you to view the preview pdf before you make your purchase decision. The preview allows you to view all of the components of this package.
Thank you for your consideration,
Mostly Simple Margo
