Students will love to see and use POW TIDE Pancakes to
remember the process ofwriting informatively. This is absolutely a great way to connect to your students and make their learning
relevant to their lives. You can display them as is or you can print them, cut them out, glue or tape the pancakes onto plastic plates, and display them like I did with a placemat, fork, and napkin. You and your students will LOVE this!
*6 Smaller pancackes to make smaller display, journal inserts, or ring of pancakes for students to use a reference when writing informatively.
