PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 22 page product contains resources to be used with an Information Report genre/text type unit.

The resources include:
•Information Report Brainstorm Mindmap + Answer Key: I use this at the beginning of the unit to find out what the students already know about information reports.
•Information Report Key Word Planning: I use this scaffold to help students plan key words before they start writing a report. Lower ability students could draw pictures.
•Information Report Concept Web: This is another scaffold to help students plan key words before they start writing a report. Lower ability students could draw pictures.
•Venn Diagram Butterfly Example Topic and Blank Topic- This Venn Diagram scaffold is useful for comparing similarities and differences between two topics for an information report.
•Listening Response Butterfly Example Topic: Listening Responses are useful as they cater to a different style of learning. There is an answer sheet, with the passage to be read at the bottom. Then there are two differentiated sheets- Listening Response A requires students to select the correct word from the word bank, while Listening Response B also provides the starting letter to assist lower ability students.
•Language of Cause and Effect Butterfly Example Topic: There is an answer sheet, and two differentiated sheets. Sheet A requires students to select the correct word from the word bank, while Sheet B requires students to circle the correct word in the passage.
•Information Report Board Game: This is a board game I use to help students engage in their topic. This board game suits animal topics chosen for Information Reports.
•Scaffold for writing- Information Report: This sheet is used to help students plan their information report by providing key words and an explicitly structured scaffold.
•Information Report Writing Post-Assessment: I give this assessment to my students at the end of the unit, it has some scaffolding.
•Information Report Rubric- Year 1: This rubric I use for marking information report assessments of Year 1 students. It includes Text Structure, Grammar Features, Sentence Structure, Punctuation, and Spelling.
•Information Report Rubric- Year 2: This rubric I use for marking information report assessments of Year 2 students. It includes Text Structure, Grammar Features, Sentence Structure, Punctuation, and Spelling.



I have used these with Grades 1 and 2 during our text type unit on Information Reports.
Note: This is not a teaching program, nor is it to be taught in the order presented. It is a collection of resources I have used successfully in the past.

Happy Teaching!
