Second grade students have begun work on the informational text unit in Writer’s Workshop. Each student has chosen an animal to write an all about book about. Students are using books from the school library and will do research in the computer lab during computer time. Students will learn important facts about their animal, while learning about the components of non-fiction informational text.
Students will include a table of contents, index and glossary in their books, as well as an about the author section. Students will continue to work on these books through January, then they will publish their texts and place them in the class library for others to read.
