This is Unit 3 of the first grade Lucy Calkins lessons. If you use Lucy Calkins...you know it can be difficult to grasp everything to teach from the manual. This will help!
I have highlighted the main ideas of each lesson in Lucy Calkins Series: Unit 3 for grade 1- Opinion-Writing for grade 1. There is a PowerPoint for each lesson from 1 to 17. (LESSON 5 is not included in the slides...it is a lesson to give a 'booby prize" for their worst piece of writing. I didn't feel it was important to include.) This is a Zip file that contains the 17 lessons. It also contains 2 word documents: Bring Your Favorite Book Reminder and Shoebox Collection Note.
The Power Points can be used while you teach each mini lesson and throughout the independent writing time.
*These are not lesson plans, but Power Point slides you can show your class while you are teaching the mini lesson. I use the slides to help keep me on track and for a visual for the students.
