These brief, focused, explicit lessons help children understand and apply the characteristics of effective writing and nurture their ability to write with purpose, imagination, and voice.

You will find two kinds of lessons in the PreK–1 Writing Minilessons Books*

  • Interactive Writing Lessons: Share the pen with students to collaboratively compose a piece of writing together as a class.

  • Writing Minilessons: Use inquiry to focus on a single writing concept to build students literacy power.


Now with The Writing Minilessons Book at your fingertips:

  • Focus learning on a single idea so children can apply the learning and build on it daily

  • Foster community through the development of shared language

  • Make connections using mentor texts from interactive read-aloud and shared reading

  • Create relevance by linking to previous learning experiences

  • Expand students’ writing competencies and link them to reading

  • Generate anchor charts for student reference

  • Nurture student independence with opportunities to extend learning

Put interactive writing lessons and writing minilessons into action and make learning visible for every child, every day.
