Product Description
Do your students struggle with writing across the content areas? Are you pulling your hair out trying to teach main idea and details to your first graders? Get them “hooked” on informative writing with this CCSS-aligned writing unit.

Take students through the writing process by teaching them how to research, brainstorm, write and edit rough drafts, and finalize their writing. Showcase student writing with ocean animal craftivities or make an end-of-unit book.

There’s no need to print all the pages I’ve provided! Save ink by just printing the pages your students will use. In addition to the black and white student printables, I’ve provided a separate pdf file of color resources that you can import into your projector for guided writing.

This unit includes the following resources:
Additional Resources Lists of Literature and Non-Fiction Text Connections and Additional Informative Resources (links to websites and names of videos)
Word Wall Words and Pictures Display the word cards and pictures for student reference while writing and reading.
Maps and Diagrams Use the maps and diagrams to teach students about oceans, continents and the zonal habitats of the ocean.
Writing Process Resources Templates for putting facts into word webs, writing rough drafts, editing, and writing “neat sheets”.
Craftivities Craftivities can be stand-alone projects or used to showcase student writing:
• scuba diver
• sea turtle
• hammerhead shark booklet
• great white shark and coral reefs
• jellyfish mobile
• “stained glass” seahorse
• octopus
• crab
• sandy starfish
• underwater manatee
• clown fish in anemone
• Ocean Zones layered book
Book Making The culminating activity for this unit is to make books made up your student’s work for them to share with their families. There’s a book cover toward the end of the writing pages.
