PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Develop students' love of writing and research with this nonfiction unit for emergent writers. I have spent many years teaching first grade students to love writing as well as mentoring K-2 teachers in implementing writers' workshop in the classroom. I even did research on the topic! All of the ideas provided in this unit have been tried in the kindergarten and 1st grade classrooms with students that are considered emergent readers and writers. This unit might also be appropriate for struggling 2nd grade students.
