What this Product Includes
This resource includes Notebook Charts and Anchor Charts for an Informational Writing Unit. For each notebook chart, there is a Full Page Anchor Chart that can be used as Anchor Charts in your Writing Center and/or as a slide show when teaching. In my 4th grade classroom, I used the Full Page Anchor Charts to teach the lesson by projecting onto the SMART board. Then, students glued the half sheet Notebook Anchor Charts in their Writing notebook to use as a reference throughout the unit.

This unit does NOT currently have daily lesson plans. A unit planner of teaching points is provided to help guide the process. In the future, lesson plans may be added. You will find pictures of possible Anchor Charts and Writing Notebooks to help you visualize how the unit might go.
