Students were able to choose a topic that they are experts on.
Some of the individual choices included:
- hover boards
We studied some mentor texts (books that have been published by authors) to learn from them. We studied their craft and text features as a model for when we write/wrote our books.
Students made a front cover, Table of Contents, Introduction, Chapter 1 & 2, and have made non-fiction text features (illustrations, photos, captions, diagrams, labels, etc.). Next week, we’ll write chapters 3 & 4 and write our conclusion!
The pictures above show students conferencing with one another!
The kids are blowing me away! Their books are top-notch thus far! 🙂
