This is one of my favorite writing workshop units to teach! This unit is ideal for that after Thanksgiving before Christmas time when the kids are SO excited about the holidays they can't even see straight! :) I like to use their enthusiasm to teach them about the writing process and the six traits.

This unit will get your kids excited about writing creative stories. Here's what you will find inside this 84 page unit:
