Research and Writing

Hello Everyone!
We have been very busy learning about nonfiction books and websites.  We've also been learning about using those nonfiction selections to do research and writing our own reports.  We began our research on raccoons. Using PebbleGo (ask your kiddo to show you all about PebbleGo!) and some books about raccoons (we love the Nature's Children books!), we brainstormed facts on our Raccoon brace map.  Every kiddo contributed to the brainstorming session.  We then worked on the rough draft of our reports. All of our hard work on the writing process paid off!  The kids did a great job.!

The next day I conferenced with each kiddo and we edited the pieces.  Final copies were written and added to a raccoon craft connection project. The kids are so proud of their products!! 
Thanks for stopping by! 
Have a wonder-filled day!
