PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

ALL ABOUT WRITING-Animal Mini-Books & Powerpoint
An engaging Common Core aligned NONFICTION MINI UNIT that will get your students excited about WRITING!

The lessons and PowerPoint presentation are designed to simplify the teaching of nonfiction writing for kindergarten and first grade students. It has been used successfully in my Kindergarten classroom but would easily work with first grade!

The students are so motivated to write about facts! It is a welcome change from narratives!

This mini-unit includes 7 step by step lessons:
1. Reading “All-About Animals”
2. Using the “I Remember Strategy”
3. Getting Started: All-About PowerPoint Presentation-The topic is iguanas. It takes the children through the process of writing a mini-animal report.
4. Writing About What You Know
5. Choosing a Topic
6. Completing a Graphic Organizer
7. Writing an Animal Mini-Book

Printable Templates: Animal Facts graphic organizer, “I Am an Expert” paper, Mini-Book writing paper, and an “I Remember” mini-poster.

The PowerPoint is a view only show but can be paused to stop and discuss the slides by right clicking your mouse.

This mini unit would also be great for an emergency sub plan.
Just email this file to colleague who can print a copy for you and hand it to your sub or add it to your “emergency sub folder”.
