Product Description
This January 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 January and fits into a year's worth of writing mini-lessons. *Also available in Kindergarten and First Grade*

The unit has an emphasis on developing stronger more focused pieces of writing that develop one main topic.

In this unit:

General information on writer's workshop and the mini-lesson
8 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 February Unit:
Groundhog Fact and Opinion- Opinion Writing
Abraham Lincoln- Informative Writing
George Washington- Expository Writing
If I Were President: Personal Narrative
Dental Health-Sequence Writing
Letter Writing
Paragraph Writing
When I am 100- 100th Day of school writing

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