My lovely class just finished up a two week unit on Bird Research! Students were required to:
1. choose a bird
2. locate information via text or online
3. list their sources
4. strengthen their writing (these were my examples)
Then, they had to do their own!
5. revising & editing with a peer
Let me tell you, it was a challenge! But to top off the unit, I had my students incorporate measurement in with the writing, by asking them to build life-size versions of their bird. This was probably the ONLY motivation that got most of them to complete all the steps for this report!
HERE ARE A FEW OF MY FINAL PRODUCTS!!
(hummingbird, penguin, roadrunner & a Dodo)
Next up, is my Picture Writing Prompt Packet
Hot off the press is my picture prompt writing packet. At this point in the year, kids should have mastery of the 3 most focused genres of writing in 2nd grade. Because its the end of the year, I'm giving my kids a little freedom, and allowing them to choose the style of writing they want to do. So with each picture, there are 3 different prompts to write about, one of each genre. Check it out!
I apologize for the extra long post, but it is FORBIDDEN to post twice in one day!! The last thing I want to say is that, I have 29 days of school left. That's all. I will give 3 of these packets away to the first 3 followers to comment and tell me how many days you have left! Have a great week!
