This is my favorite writing unit! My students loved being the "experts!" Unit 4 of my Year of Writing Common Core Aligned Curriculum provides everything you need to plan, teach, and assess students' informational writing skills. Written and used in second grade but easily adaptable for grades 1-3, as the standards are nearly identical.
This unit includes:
Anchor Charts & Sequence of events
Printable Anchor Charts
Parent Volunteer Letter
Student Planning Pages
Informational Writing Rubric for assessment and
Student Informational Rubrics
Reflection and Feedback pages
Class Progress Tracker
All of these pages can be used again and again any time you teach or touch on informational writing!
