When Scholastic asked what book selection I’d like to have to work with my students this year, without hesitation, I asked for Owl Moon by Jane Yolen. Yolen is one of my favorite authors. Her ability to paint a vivid picture for her audience is a skill I share with my young authors throughout our studies of writing personal narratives, or small moments.
My school uses the units of study created by a team within our district. The writing teachers that collaborated on the Common Core Units of Study are beyond talented. I am proud to highlight and share the work the Oakland County team has done. You will also find a selection of materials I developed to supplement and enhance this unit.
