This 12 page document is an excellent resource to use when teaching informational/explanatory writing. The document includes two posters that show students that this genre has two purposes (first to inform the reader and second to state a procedure). The document also includes two note taking sheet, so when students receive information pertaining to a topic they have a way of recording facts. The document also includes four different graphic organizers. These organizer are highly scaffolded, meet the needs of students at different levels, and ultimately teach the students a structure on how to properly write a well developed paragraph (or paper).
I hope you enjoy the product. I researched this standard critically before developing. It is built with a lot of love!
