Looking for a way to bring in informational/non-fiction writing into your classroom?
This *freebie* includes an informational writing page and summarizer for fiction books.
Students can you the organizer for the informational writing piece about an animal to help them organize their ideas. Then students will transfer what they learned from their nonfiction book that they have read and write about the animal in an informational writing piece.
This freebie also comes with a criteria for success so students know exactly what is expected of them in their final product.
Also, if you your students are working on summarizing with fiction books, I have also provided a page and a criteria for success to help with summarizing.
