This product includes 50 informational writing cards that can be used for informational or explanatory writing. There is one card for each state.
Each card includes information such as the state capital, largest city, number of people, and also some fun facts that children will enjoy.
These informational writing cards have so many uses in the classroom! Use these cards for:
-a writing center during your literacy block
-teaching students to ask and answer questions about a topic
-teaching how to gather information to write informational texts
-comparing and contrasting two cards using graphic organizers such as a venn
-jump starting research projects (the topic on the card can be further
researched using books, online resources, etc.)
These cards are great for whole group AND small group instruction. After purchasing, you may print multiple copies of a card if you have more students than cards, or, for example, if you want to use the same card for everyone in a small group lesson.
The front and back pages of the cards are flipped so that cards will align correctly when printing. If you print one side, you can then reinsert the paper in the printer upside down and print the back side.
*I recommend laminating these cards so that they can be used again and again.*
