PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This April writing unit addresses the age old question, "What am I going to do today for my writing mini-lesson?" Each mini-lesson helps to build competent, equipped, and motivated young writers!

If you have been to my writing workshop presentation, this unit follows the monthly mini-lessons for March and fits into a year's worth of writing mini-lessons.

The unit has an emphasis on poetry and descriptive language.

In this unit:

General information on writer's workshop and the mini-lesson
7 easy to follow writing mini-lessons (some lessons will need to be repeated on multiple days due to the complexity or the multiple options of the lessons)
A variety of writing paper templates.

Lessons in the April Unit:

Poetry is as easy as 1,2,3 Number Poems
Animal Poem Riddles
5 Senses Rain Poetry
Days of the Week Poetry
Speak to Me- Picture Descriptive Word Poetry
A Little Seed Sequence Writing
Alliteration & Tongue Twisters Poetry

This unit is standards based and has been aligned to the CC and Texas Teks for writing.
