READY TO TEACH - Just open it up and start to teach!
Launching Writing Workshop - Writing - 22 sessions - 3rd - 5th Grade - SMART NOTEBOOK version
**This unit follows the Launching Writers workhop unit written by Lucy Calkins and the Teacher’s College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP).
*** While this unit is “ready to teach”, it cannot be taught without first purchasing the unit and utilizing its extensive notes, essays, and digital resources. It is meant to be a supplement to - not a replacement for - Lucy’s unit. In developing this unit for my classroom, I wanted something that I could use that would give a visual representation of Lucy’s lessons, be easy enough that a sub could teach it, and give my special education an ELL’s something to refer to.
Each session has a full range of slides that follow the “ mini lesson”. They include a connection, active engagement, Watch me try, you try, Link
This is the complete bundle of all the SMART Board presentations - from Lesson 1 through Lesson 22(see below).
The lessons follow the Workshop structure of Connection, Teaching Point, Teaching, Active Engagement, Independent Work, and Share.
