All About Books

We teach Writer's Workshop with mini-lessons in the style of Lucy Caulkins. We recently held an author's celebration where the children presented their "All About" books to parents. They are fantastic. The students worked really hard to be experts on a non-fiction topic. We didn't do research, but they had to choose topics that they already knew something about.


Topics included Cats, Sports, Sharks, Space, India and My Family.

    1. I wish I could take credit, but the format is from a series of books for teachers by Lucy Calkins. It's a fantastic set of books for writing and writer's workshop. Here are the first 2 books on Amazon:
