Nonfiction Chapter Books - Unit 1 Bend 2 - 7 sessions - This resource was created in Google Slides.
This bend of the unit covers bringing small moment stories to life.
NOTE: This unit follows the information writing unit written by Lucy Calkins and the Teachers College Reading and Writing Project (TCRWP).
NOTE: 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 EAL and visual learners a way to learn.
NOTE: The preview file and thumbnails only represent a few of the slides from one of the sessions. Each session has the full range of slides. These are only meant to show you the quality of the product you will purchase.
