This is the perfect way to celebrate Veterans Day while mixing informational reading, informational writing and Social, Studies!
The Common Core has put an emphasis on informational reading and writing in every grade. Teaching students to organize informational writing using informational books and text can be a challenge.
Am I alone or do all students just LOVE using sticky notes?! In this lesson students will research Veterans, take notes using sticky notes and turn their notes into a report with illustrations.
The writing pages will help keep writers organized!
The lesson includes:
An informational text passage with comprehension questions
First draft pages
Final draft pages with illustrations
They will love the process while learning about Veterans Day, note-taking and report writing!
