We are wrapping up the end of our second writing unit. In this unit students created informational texts about topics that they felt that they were experts in. This included a wide range of topics which focused on things like TV shows, family members, and pets. Our topics began to change and become focused on what we researched during Readers' Workshop. Our lessons focused on how to plan an informational book, how to hook a reader's attention, and how to develop our writing by using several nonfiction moves. We practiced creating paragraphs with key words, twin sentences to add more details, and created text features to visually explain our topic. Students are currently working on creating a document using their google classroom account. These books will be published as a paper copy and as an online copy for our website. Followed are several charts from our Writing lessons:
