I love watching my kiddos pouring over the new books I put out when we start a unit. I needed a place to record the information they were learning as they independently read books about our topic. They found so much good information and loved sharing it, but had no place to put it as they learned it. This also helps them know what some of the important categories to look for are. After they fill out the Read for Information page they can do the Can Have Are page to prepare them for their writing. I’ve included some writing pages as well. I love that this gives my students a specific purpose for reading and an easy way to organize their thoughts.
