Writing Biographies! {FREEBIE}

Do you teach about biographies?  
Last week we used the anchor chart above to introduce what a biography is (…isn’t George cute?)  I saw him originally at Apples, Crayons, and Caffeine. We brainstormed the things we thought a biography is, what’s included,  and the questions it might answer.
We read about Tomás Rivera in our reading series and also did a mini-unit on biographies and autobiographies.  
I created a small, but substantial pack to go along with it.  My students wrote biographies about famous people, as well as interviewed each other and wrote a biography of a friend.  They even wrote an autobiography later in the week!

If you would like to win a copy of this pack, just leave a comment below and I will choose a winner in a few days! =) 
 I also listed my “Just Add Dice Bundle” for a super low price!  I am planning on adding the Valentine’s Day pack to it later today. Buy it super low now and as I add packs to it, you have no additional cost!  Wow!!   
Enjoy your Sunday!!


  1. It's funny that you just created this pack because we just added the word biography to our "wow words" wall! I deleted the previous comment because it didn't make sense!

  2. This would also work great for my second graders. We have a mini-bio unit coming up later in the year. FIngers crossed!

  5. I would love to teach my first graders more about biographies as part of our informational texts analysis. I think this product will help me accomplish my goal.
