Are you looking for an easier way to teach the Lucy Calkins writing curriculum? This is a word document of the Big Ideas taught in all 20 Sessions in the Unit 2 Nonfiction Chapter Books manual for Lucy Calkins first grade writing. Please download the preview file to read about my rationale, how I developed the big idea lists, and how I use the big idea lists to plan my lessons.
Big Ideas were found in each section of the session:
conferring and small group work
mid-workshop teaching point
Specific pages in the Nonfiction Chapter Books manual are referenced when visuals were provided that I found useful.
These are my own notes that I made for my own personal use. You may find small imperfections in my syntax. I am selling this as a word document so that you can alter and edit the lists to fit your needs, teaching style, and interpretation of the Lucy Calkins writing curriculum.
