Connecting Information: We will read two books on an informational topic and make a connection between the two topics. For example, if we read a book about Polar Bears and then Brown Bears, we might write: "Polar Bears and Brown Bears eat fish."
Describing words: After working together to describe items using our senses, as well as, using descriptive words to guess an item, students will use this resource to do the same.
Fact or Opinion: After much modeling, students will determine whether or not the items are facts or opinions.
One fact: Many times throughout reading informational texts, students will practice writing one fact from the text - this will assist them when it is time for them to research and write 3 facts about their topic. (baby steps:)
Verbs show action: After working together, students will write a verb about an animal they choose. For example: The rabbit can hop. The dog can bark.
After completing, they will share with peers by acting out the verb!
