After teaching “how to writing” to k & 1st graders for over 2 decades, I finally decided it was time to create a writing curriculum that I know WORKS WONDERS for young writers ...& their teachers! You won't find any other informational writing units that compare to this one. It’s packed with all the best tips & tricks I’ve come up with & learned over the years. It's presented in an easy-to-teach, not-too-wordy format teachers appreciate. You can pull out a lesson & teach it on the spot. It’s very thoughtfully organized & designed to help you transform your young writers into confident, proud authors & illustrators!

One of the most exciting elements that really sets this unit apart from any other is how the lessons cycle through these 3 important themes:

 6 Illustration Inspiration Lessons : designed to teach how to create the best quality, most impactful illustrations.

 8 Write for your Readers Lessons : that train writers how to make their writing readable & effective.

 8 Super Star Writing Secrets : that reveal clever, creative tips designed to help young writers boost their stories to the next level & make it the very BEST it can be.

•The unit also begins with research, planning, & practice. It concludes with an end-of unit celebration.

What else do you get? Oh my goodness... SO MUCH!
