Hi everyone! This is Lynda from Curls and a Smile!
We are currently taking a close look at nonfiction text and all the wonderful ways to take information from what we read to build our understanding of the world around us. The students are in L.O.V.E. with reading these exciting and interesting text and as we know good readers build strong writers! So, here is a great way to gather information as they read and develop their brainstorming and note taking techniques and prepare to write about one of their favorite topics....weather!!
The students conducted their own research using a variety of nonfiction texts that go along with what they read in their reading series and science textbooks.
Once they collected their factual information, the kiddos write about what they discovered and created a 5 page book about several different topics. They love to make these books! Check out my post at
to see how my students used their graphic organizers to create their 5 page books and grab a couple extra freebies too!
