This is a great way to celebrate Halloween in your classroom while keeping your students learning! This would also be great for a bug unit.
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 a spider, take notes using sticky notes, turn their notes into a report, 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.
The writing pages will help keep writers organized!
They will love the process while learning about deserts, note-taking and report writing! It can be done independently or in groups. And it would go nicely with a fun handprint spider craft!
