Teach your students how to use transition words and powerful verbs to transition from one idea to another. They also learn how to elaborate their ideas. The students really get into the two topics we write about: The Best Sandwich (or sub or burger) Ever! and their own island (which they design themselves). They love sharing their writing with each other!
Everything you need to successfully teach this two week unit is included: mentor texts (writing models) step by step lesson plans, writing papers, and a rubric for easy assessment.
I wish you great success with this unit!
