This two week writing unit has been taken out of Write On! Unit 4. If you already own Unit 4 of Write On (or the Write On Bundle), you do not need to purchase this unit! We have separated it for teachers who want to focus on paragraph writing.
In this 2 week information writing unit your students will learn how to build a juicy paragraph with a topic sentence, details, explanations (for 3rd grade), and a closing sentence. The students will be taken through the writing process of Brainstorming, Writing, Revising, Editing, and Publishing as they learn to write paragraphs.
Here's what is included:
Zoom Zone: Distinguishing between Big Ideas and Narrow Topics- Chart, Minilesson materials, Sunglasses Craft, and Graphic Organizer
Building a Hamburger: digital poster, hamburger pieces, paragraph scroll for students, building a paragraph activity
Writing a Paragraph: booklet and writing pages for rough drafts
Sentence Structure Cones: digital posters, sorting activity, ice cream craft, printables
Hamburger Cafe- all materials needed for your students to build their very own edible hamburger (you'll need food items from the grocery store for this)
Editing- Using a dictionary to correct spelling
Editing- Close Editing Steps
Publishing: Hamburger Craft for students to make, writing pages for published writing.
*Please note, this writing unit may take longer than two weeks. Go at the pace of your students and allow for maximum writing time.
