Another way that we wrapped up our information unit in reading and writing was to create a Chatterpix about one of the animals that students studied as they read. Students had to learn the information through their reading and then create a paragraph that included what their animal's habitat was, what food they eat, information about their body, and about their babies or life cycle. Their recordings could only be 30 seconds so they packed a lot of information in a short period of time! We hope you enjoy learning a few tidbits about each animal!

Today in our class we celebrated the end of our reading and writing information units by performing surgery on text features from Scholastic News magazines. Students "surgically removed" the text feature that they found in the text and then placed it on the correct text feature page. They then explained how that text feature helped them to understand the text better. The kids had a great time being surgeons for the day!
