In the Lucy Calkins' Units of Study for K-2, she suggests a unit in which students study the writing craft of an author. My students LOVE Kevin Henkes, so I've created this unit, based upon some of Lucy's teaching points and many of my own, to help my students write like Mr. Henkes! This unit contains:
*20 suggested mini-lessons for a unit of approximately 4-5 weeks
*Suggested anchor chart
*List of necessary texts
*Published piece rubric
*Author celebration rubric
*Comment sheet for author celebration gallery walk
