This is a bundle of three lessons that can be used in any writer's workshop program where students are writing about animals. If you are teaching students to write all about books and the focus is on animals then this bundle will be helpful. The lessons focus on using mentor texts to study what good informational writers do, and how they use boxes, blurbs, and diagrams to support or enhance the text. You can modify the lessons if you don't have the books that are focused on, or you can get these books on Amazon. Overall the lessons can be done with any non-fiction books that include boxes, blurbs, and diagrams. Students are encouraged to emulate these strategies when drafting their own all-about books. The lessons are in TC format and can be used for an observation. Pictures of the anchor charts are included, as well as printouts to make the charts. I also included student work samples to show examples of actual outcomes that you can expect.
