This 4 to 5-week unit will help you teach your students to write nonfiction / all about books!

The lessons begin by having students write nonfiction / informational books about topics they know well. Then, students work with you to complete a class research project. Students learn how to create a table of contents and page headings to organize their writing. The unit concludes with a simple partner research project in which students collaborate to write books about an animal.

This unit is designed to be taught during the second half of kindergarten but can be taught in the first half if you have very strong readers and writers in your class.

Here’s what the unit includes:

- 20 clear, detailed minilessons (that tell you what to say and do)

- Tips for structuring the writer's workshop

- Printable writing paper

- Common Core alignment

- Rubrics and checklists

- Printable posters and alphabet chart

- Graphic organizers

Common Core alignment is included, but many classrooms that do not follow the Common Core Standards still use this unit.
