We just finished up 6 weeks of informational writing! Whew! I am ashamed to admit that I wasn't really looking forward to it, I ended up LOVING it. In small groups my students chose an animal to study and we read books, magazines and watched videos on each of the animals. My students amazed me with the information they were able to give on their animals. We will do final class presentations on Monday. We did a whole class study on BATS before their small group work so that I would be able to model, model, model. I have had a B.Y.U. student in my classroom for the past few weeks and she took their final writing project and turned it into a little movie. ENJOY!
