Nonfiction Conventions

My first freebie! Last week my students made their Nonfiction Conventions Notebooks. I love teaching nonfiction text features. If you would like a copy of the book you can click here

This week, in Writer’s Workshop my students are going to do 2 expository writings. First, they will do an informational writing about an animal. Then, they will make a question-answer book about the same animal. It is going to be a busy week.

Yippee! My blog Portrait of a Second Grader is up and I won one of Miss Squirrel’s giveaways on Going Nutty! I got to choose something from Lori at Conversations in Literacy. Can’t wait to use the Dolch Second Grade Sight Word Fluency Practice!
