Thank you for checking out my Writer’s Workshop: How-To Writing unit! This unit was used and developed with the inspiration of Lucy Calkins. I used this in my first grade classroom and found that over the course of the unit, students began to really understand the importance of adding details into their books. Students found this unit to be a lot of fun and enjoyed reading their peers’ stories too! Please make sure you read through all of the information before looking at the lessons, as it will really help you!
These lessons help students with the following skills:
Writing a how-to, step-by-step book
Using sequential words to indicate order of steps
Writing specific directions that anyone can understand and follow
The unit also includes revision and editing checklists and paper for you to use in your classroom. Check out the preview to see more!
