First, we spent a little time reviewing synthesizing...we'll continue to work on this one!
I started off with a chart.
I had printed out some of Teaching With a Mountain View's Informational Text Structure Cards, and I had them glue one into their notebooks to respond to.
So after we added it to our notebooks, I used some of her other informational cards and typed them up on my SMART Board.
Cue two snow days :)
I wanted to add some examples into their notebooks, so they could easily see the differences between them, and being inspired by the Blizzard of 2015, I used it as the basis for all of my examples.
We added them to our notebooks, and I had the kids do this one independently.
I had the students pick another task card to glue into their notebooks and respond again.
assessment, and we'll be moving onto NonFiction Text Features!
