This great mini books are perfect for centers. All focus on non fiction topics and ask the students to include facts in their writings. Topics include:
Word banks give students basic words they might use in their writing. Each lesson includes a word bank, and checklist under the prompt and beside the prewrite. This allows easy access to brainstorming paper. Second page includes illustration area and writing area. You can run these front to back and fold to create books.
My students love these minibooks and I love having all parts of the writing process in one place. Word bank includes space to add additional words.
