Product Description
One way to engage your young writers is by studying well-known authors, learning ways they make their writing strong, and trying those strategies in new texts. Who better to learn from than Mo Willems! His Elephant and Piggie books are favorites in my first grade classroom, and his writing style is both easy for students to study while also providing some challenge to your higher K-2 writers.

In this author study mini-unit, you'll find:
*A unit overview to give you a guide for scope and sequence of the lessons
*10 mini-lessons that are scripted with a Connect, Teach, Active Engagement, Link, and Share
*Two graphic organizers (story planning page and storyboard) to help your young writers plan their books
*Writing pages (a cover, eight numbered pages that correspond to the storyboard, and an About the Author page)
*Two rubrics (one linked to CCSS for first grade writing, but both contain unit-specific content)
*Ten mini-posters to print and hang that list the taught mini-lessons


PLEASE NOTE: The eight numbered writing pages only contain a number. They do not have lines for writing or a box for the picture, because the Elephant and Piggie books are written with large pictures and speech or thought bubbles. I provided numbered pages for my students to make their booklets so they can match the number in the storyboard box to their page as they draft their piece. However, the cover contains a border and the About the Author page contains lines and a picture box. Please see the preview if you have any questions about this.

I typically spend about one month with my first graders in this mini-unit, and it is always a class favorite!

Please download the preview and let me know if you have any questions prior to purchasing. Thank you so much!
