Lucy Calkins Readers, Writers Workshop, Readers Workshop, Nonfiction, Information Essay

I combined my Lucy Calkins Nonfiction Writers Workshop and Readers Workshop unit plans for you to save! Both have a 4.0 rating and proven to work in the classroom!

All materials included so that you can print and teach Reading and Writing for the next month (or more) of school!

Writers Workshop Informational Unit
that will take you through 3 weeks of school (15 lessons) that might last longer depending on your students. From Brainstorming to a Rubric to grade final pieces with, this has everything you need.

I uploaded this after I used it in my classroom, and can say that it is a successful set of lessons that will take you through each step of the writing process without having to create or plan anything. It is all done for you!

This unit follows the Lucy Calkins Writers Workshop format planning and includes each day's objective, the lesson breakdown, and ALL MATERIALS that you will need.

1. 36 pages of lessons, Teacher Model sheets, activity sheets, anchor charts, and graphic organizers
2. An introduction to the unit/genre
3. To implement grammar, I included a lesson and Anchor Chart to help teach the use of commas before the words 'and', 'but', and 'or'
4. Teacher example work so you do not have to prepare your own
5. Options for differentiating independent writing
6. Partner Conferencing Forms
7. Anchor Chart to help teach writing a lead
8. Anchor Chart to help teach the use of transition words
9. Rubric with space for Teacher Response and Student Response

Nonfiction Readers Workshop Unit
allows you to teach students how to navigate nonfiction texts and collect research. It is modeled as a Readers Workshop. However, teachers who are unfamiliar with this structure of teaching will be able to successfully use this unit by following the detailed lesson plans.
