We have been working on writing informational writing pieces as a class. We wrote on several different topics involving how to plant a garden, tools used in a garden and animals found in a garden. This week, the class is writing their own piece. I checked out several animal, insect and plant books from our school library. We first looked through all of the books and the students found at least three they would love to learn more about. After going through all of the books, I put them out on the chalkboard and called students up one at a time to pick one of their favorite choices. Once every student had a book, we broke up into partners and practiced one of our three ways to read a book...read the pictures! We then took the books home and read the words with our family before coming back the next day to begin our writing!
