Informational Checklist

Alas! We made it through our snow days and are back on track (for now)! Second graders are beginning to write their Informational All-About books. Students are asked to pick a topic they are experts at or know a lot about. Their job is to teach that topic to someone else. So far, each of us have created a list of ideas that include hobbies, people, places, etc. We have started talking about how to begin our informational stories. We learned in order to create an effective lead, we should first introduce our topic and share a fact that might interest our reader. Next week students will be working with a new checklist for this type of writing.
