Need a writing unit for November? I've got you covered!
***Just updated to include Wampanoag information in text form as well as Paiute fact sheet and text form. I will continue to add more tribes!!!
This unit provides explicit instruction for students on how to write an informational paper. Mini-lessons, writing papers, and informational pages are included!
Since I teach a multigrade class, the unit is differentiated to meet the needs of various levels of students. I truly understand having many leveled writers in one room!
There is no prep needed for this unit! Just select the pages you want and print them for your students. I do suggest a writing folder or 3 ring binder. It helps keep the students organized. We use 3-ring binders so the students can easily take papers in and out.
It takes about 2 weeks for the younger students and about 1 week for the older ones to complete each unit.
The units are perfect together. Use one as a shared writing project, then the other as a more independent project. The first serves as a guided practice and the second is independent practice. It could even be sent home as homework for a family project! You could even split the class in half. Half do Pilgrims and the other half complete the Native American report. Have a Thanksgiving celebration sharing the reports and celebrating by dressing up and having food. There are so many possibilities. It could fill your whole November!
I truly hope this unit makes your life a little easier. My students enjoy the lessons and appreciate the explicit approach.
