PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product is in alignment with common core standards for non-fiction writing. During this unit, students write a non-fiction book about a topic they know tons about. Examples of topics include camping, babysitting, fashion, technology, hunting, fishing, playing sports, being in plays, hobbies, etc. Once they have a topic, they move to the planning stage where they come up with chapters and three main ideas they will talk about in each chapter. They will plan out their layouts for each page of their book as well. During the writing stage they will focus on informational writing and adding text features that will support their main ideas. I typically buy hard cover books for the publishing process, but you can publish these books in a variety of ways. Here is what the product includes:

1) A unit overview
2) Fourteen lesson plans (minilessons)
3) A non-fiction writing organizer to guide students through the writing process (includes how to do a copyright page and an index guide)
4) A non-fiction writing checklist for students to use to guide them through the writing process
5) Two non-fiction writing rubrics (you get to choose which one you would like to use)
6) A comments sheet for the day students share their non-fiction books
7) A "Pushing Our Thinking" Checklist
