Writers workshop - Lucy Calkins story mountain. Students create notes on a post it forming small ideas. Students take the small ideas and paste them right into their notebook to creat a story. Yellow post it's are the who's, when's and what's of the story, blue can be 3 main ideas or a Problem and pink is a strong closing or the solution to the problem in the story.
Have students glue this menu in their reader’s notebooks to help them think, write, and discuss their complex historical fiction texts. I use this with menu to help guide students through book clubs. Common Core Aligned! Great to use with Lucy Calkins Units of Study or any historical fiction unit.
Lucy Calkins' Units of Study include an Authors as Mentors unit... I've successfully used this Kevin Henkes unit with my first graders for years and it's always a hit! Unit is newly updated with DETAILED lesson plans, CCSS aligned rubrics, and more!
