Marvelous Minilessons for Teaching Nonfiction Writing K–3


40 minilessons offer strategies to help students use non-fiction writing to record and share their ideas.

Today’s young learners know more about their world than ever before. This remarkable book shows that even our youngest writers can consider audience and purpose as they use nonfiction writing to document their ideas and share those ideas with others. But if students are going to be able to use writing to learn, they must have opportunities for learning to write—that’s what this book is for. Forty minilessons offer strategies for writing informational, persuasive and procedural text. Each lesson starts with a learning goal and follows an “I do, We do, You do” format. Teachers will find a wealth of ideas for guiding young students to write about what they know and care about.
