Using This Product in Your Classroom
This is a writing unit for the month of April and covers Common Core standards for 5th grade writing. The standard and objectives are written on each lesson. For each writing topic of persuasive, informative, and narrative writing there are 4-5 lessons. The lessons build on each other and end with a final writing project.
For persuasive writing the students will write about the 3 best famous dinner guests to dine with from history and today.
Informative writing will include a biography writing project. Students will make a paper doll holding a biography for the ending project.
Finally, for narrative writing, students will write an autobiography. They will make a flipbook for the ending project. With the anchor charts, I would print them out and laminate them to hang in the classroom and refer to as needed. This product also includes 6 writing centers that are biography and autobiography themed and cover the 6 traits of writing.
Last, there are 8 journal prompts that are biography and autobiography themed. These could be used during center time or for a self start.
