This bundle contains two of my writing products.
Informative Writing: This product will guide your children as they research a desert animal of their choice. It contains pages they can use to take notes and write a final copy. These are all black and white. Students will shade a diagram of the continents to show where their animal lives. They must draw a diagram of the animal and label parts of its body. Children will explain the life cycle of the animal. They will also include a glossary and bibliography.
Also included is a more basic form that could be used for differentiation. Students must write an introduction sentence, write six facts and draw six small pictures to go with the facts and write a conclusion sentence.
I use this when we read A Walk in the Desert in our Scott Foresman Reading Street series.
Opinion Writing: I have been tying some of our opinion writing to books that we read in class. We use the Scott Foresman reading series and read a story called Cowboys. After the kids read this story they must decide whether they would want to have been a cowboy in the Wild West. They must use information that they have read to support their opinion. Pacing guide included.
