Non Fiction Writing

HAPPY SPRING BREAK!!! So excited for this much needed week off!!! :) Hope those who are on the same schedule as me enjoys their time off too.

A few weeks ago we finished our non fiction books about animals. I let the kids choose an animal they would like to write about, one that they "know"
a lot about. Now, this is the second year I have done this andthe first year I really put an emphasis on the research behind they books. This year I really wanted them to include different text features that we commonly find in a non fiction book. (table of contents, diagrams, captions, headings, etc) I think they did a great job! The books turned out super cute and the kids were so proud of their work and showed off their books at open house. Here is one of the books, one of my artsy kiddos.
