This bundle includes seven writing workshop units and three sets of mentor texts designed for young writers. The paper included with each unit has a checklist right on it that students can use as a rubric to self monitor their writing for each genre.
Included in the writing units you will find:
- paper specifically designed for young writers, with spaces for words and drawings
- checklists (rubrics) on all paper/booklets to help children self monitor
- large group checklist
- peer revision checklist
- pacing guide for teachers
- guide to using checklists
Each genre includes specialized additional resources, such as:
- step by step images to help students understand how to write pieces in specific genres
- sample texts with blank lines for shared writing
- photos of anchor charts
- student anchor charts
The checklists in these units help students to remember to include important features in their work, specific to each genre.
There are also three sets of companion mentor texts. It can be difficult to find mentor texts in the library that really show young writers specifically what we want them to do, at their level. These books offer high quality examples, using exactly the criteria we have for the kids. There are hand drawn/written examples as well as typed/digital examples for writing how to books, all about books, and for exploring the concepts of beginning, middle, and end. There is an interactive whiteboard version of the beginning, middle, and end mentor texts so that you can write them together, on screen, as a group!
