The Common Core has put an emphasis on informational reading and writing in every grade. Teaching students to do informational writing using informational books can be a challenge.
Am I alone or do all students just LOVE using sticky notes?! In this lesson students will research an animal, take notes using sticky notes, write a report from an animal's point of view, illustrate, reflect on their writing and critique a partner's report. You can also have your students create a Table of Contents and Sources page if you choose. They will love the process while learning about animals, point of view, and report writing!
