I'm here to make report writing a little bit easier for you - especially if you have some children in your class who are emergent readers at a higher age group.
Here you will find some sample reportson the Emperor penguin, a native of the Antarctic. The pack is structured so that it will fit in with what you are doing already in class or to base your unit around it.
You will find:
A report writing checklist with traffic light self assessment
Emperor penguin information
Emperor penguin and Emperor penguin chick checklist charts
Writing frames to help children write a step by step report - especially good for emergent writers.
True or false - information clarification
All these writing frames and activities will help your students to prepare for writing a non-chronological report.
American and British English alternative writing frames where appropriate.
Happy teaching and enjoy!
