Bundle Description

The ultimate BUNDLE includes 54 mini lessons that teach the six traits of writing (ideas, organization, voice, sentence fluency, word choice, and conventions) and is intended for grades K-5 within all 3 genres (18 mini lessons in each) of informational, narrative and persuasive/narrative/opinion writing. These lessons were developed as a resource to support teachers in teaching the six traits using the mentor texts and lesson ideas that were expanded upon from the book The Writing Thief, by Ruth Culham, which is a trait-based strategy to assess and teach writing. All ideas and verbiage from The Writing Thief are clearly cited directly back to the book.

The lessons are designed to be completed during one writer’s workshop period, which is typically 45-60 minutes. Approximately 10-15 minutes of the workshop time should be devoted to a quick, teacher led mini lesson, the teaching point, “I do," while the remaining time of the workshop time should be devoted to students for active engagement and student interaction, “You do,” and writing independently. In some cases, the active engagement piece may take a few writer’s workshop sessions for students to complete. It is during that time that writing time that the most important instruction takes place: conferring with students or meeting with small groups with the same need for instruction.

Each genre comes with 18 mini lessons for grades K-5. The lessons are designed for differentiation so you could use the lessons below, at or above the grade level you teach. You could teach the ‘at grade level’ lesson to your whole group, enrich or accelerate using the ‘above grade level’ lessons in small groups and use the ‘below grade level’ lessons for your struggling readers and writers in small groups as well.

Includes:

A list of mentor texts (read alouds) needed for each lesson. These can be borrowed from your school library. Some mini lessons require certain passages which are included. See preview for a list of mentor texts.
