Kindergarten Pattern Books Unit // This unit will teach your students to write pattern books. Why teach students to write pattern stories when they have already learned how to tell a story and write across pages? First, it exposes your students to a different type of writing and helps them realize that authors can write different types of books, including books that follow a pattern. Many students don’t realize that writing these types of books is, in fact, writing. Second, this will allow your students who lack confidence in their writing abilities to grow as writers. The later lessons will focus on writing more complex patterns. This will allow you to differentiate the pattern writing for your students.

•You will need multiple pattern books to use as mentor texts. These should be around guided reading levels A/B. You will need one book that has an opposites pattern and one book that has a question and answer format. I did not specify books in this unit because I know you most likely have many options around your classroom.
