5th Grade Writing Unit!

It's Friday!  Happy Friday!!

In celebration of the weekend, I am super excited to share with you my new product- a 5th grade writing unit!  I absolute LOVE writer's workshop and supporting writers in the classroom.  It's so often that I have little ones who despise writing.  Which just breaks-my-heart.  Seriously.  Writing should be all about having FUN!  It's such an important skill for our little guys to learn and I just loooove writer's workshop so much, I decided to put together a writing unit for the year just for 5th grade teachers!  I have only completed Unit 1 so far, but am working on Units 2-7.  Check out Unit 1 HERE! 

When they are all complete, they will take you through an entire school year in Writer's Workshop.  All Lesson Plans, Unit Plans, Management Forms, and Rubrics are included with every unit, which makes your job a breeze (ha!)!  Ever wonder how you were going to conference with every student?  No problem!  I've got that all figured out for you! 

Hopefully you have wonderful, beautiful, August weather and are enjoying some time outside and not too much time in your classroom!

Oh, and be on the lookout for a special new series my lady, Mrs. Cahill, and I will be doing on co-teaching!  Coming this weekend!
