This is a Writing Station I use in class for Informative Writing. Students peruse the Free Happy Tails Magazine found in your local grocery store. Students then use information from the magazine to inform readers on where they can adopt this animal, how much the animal will cost to adopt, etc. Students use the criteria listed in the download to inform readers about their chosen animal. Students never tire of this station as there is a new Happy Tails Magazine each month with new animals to choose for adoption! Students also utilize our Jet Pride Writer's Rubric (check out my other listing) to make sure all the teacher's expectations are covered before turning in their writing.
*If you do not have access to Happy Tails Magazine, you could use adoption articles from your local newspaper or online animal adoption sites.
