PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Implementing writing workshop empowers and excites young writers. The trouble can be knowing how to inspire them with engaging mini-lessons before setting them off on their merry writing way. What better inspiration than picture books by published authors?

This package includes mini-lessons for teaching writing using informative texts. The lessons are in a slideshow format so you can display ideas related to mentor texts, but also print the pages and add them to your writing wall as writing anchor posters. I have carefully selected 15 picture books to teach students how to write informative pieces. Each of the texts are matched to one of the 6 traits of writing and guide students in developing their own ideas. I have also included 1-4 mentor sentences from each book to focus on author’s writing style. Students will recognize how writers use the 6 traits to enhance their work. Students will attempt to implement similar styles in their own work. You can go through the mini-lessons in the order I have them set, or you can jump around to best meet the needs of your writers. No more than 10 minutes should be spent each day on mini-lessons. You may choose to use 2-3 mentor texts each week, depending on your time. Texts can also be integrated as reading mini-lessons.

My purpose in creating this package was two-fold: take the mystery out of, “What do I write?”, and make the best out of every writing mini-lesson with students. My students love writing mini-lessons using mentor texts and they love learning how to improve their work. Writing should be fun for students. Writers Workshop gives students the opportunity to be imaginative risk-takers. Allow them to take their creativity to a new level in writing!
