About the “Doodle” Notes:
Students will develop an understanding of the Nonfiction Text Structures first by completing a set of doodle notes for each text structure. Doodle notes are color-it-in, fill-it-in, and doodle-encouraging note sheets. They’re not only visually engaging, they’re also effective in helping students increase their focus and ability to recall information. Plus…they’re really fun! Students glue their doodle notes into their interactive notebooks. In each mini-unit, there are 2 options of Doodle Notes:
• Option 1: All the notes are filled in. With this option students will color, embellish, and add doodles to the notes as you review the information with the class.
• Option 2: Some of the notes are filled in and students need to fill in the remainder of the notes (like guided notes). Students will work to fill in the notes as you teach the content.
About the “Do” Activities
After students complete their Doodle Notes it’s time for them to “Do” some fun activities. The activities are designed around lessons to help students deepen their understanding of the Nonfiction Text Structures. The activities are different in each mini-unit, but generally require students to showcase their learning by reading, writing, analyzing, and speaking.
