Lucy Calkins is our new district mission. Her ideas are great but the organization of her teacher guide is anything but! I spent this past summer going through unit 1 of Writing and created this powerpoint presentation for the first unit. Last year I struggled with trying to underline and get the teaching point while juggling data collection, behavior modification and teaching other subjects! I have been using this and am very happy with the results. I hope I can make your life a little easier as well. We all do so much already. Why not have a resource right at your fingertips.
Each lesson is broken down into the mini-lesson and main teaching point. There are also notes for you in the notes section to help keep you organized.
