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. It provides wealth of hands-on minilessons, offering 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 plentiful tips, tools, and strategies for guiding young students to write about what they know and care about.
