The first-grade units are written for children who are just tapping into their burgeoning powers as readers as well as writers, and believe they can do anything. Students begin with the always-popular unit Small Moments: Writing with Focus, Detail, and Dialogue.
In this unit students take the everyday events of their young lives and make them into focused, well-structured stories, then they learn to breathe life into the characters by making them talk, think, and interact.
Please note that this unit, which is offered for separate purchase here, is included in the Units of Study in Opinion, Information and Narrative Writing, Grade 1 with Trade Book Pack
