Non-Fiction Writing

The students have been doing AMAZING in non-fiction writing this week.  On Monday we made a KWL chart for Black Bears, Tuesday we did Polar Bears, and today we did Grizzly Bears.  Each day for writing they have to write 2 facts they learned.  They are allowed to use the KWL chart for reference if they need to.  Check out some of the students non-fiction books so far:



 And our bears are still hibernating...

    1. I will take a picture of our KWL and post it tomorrow! But, it is K (what the students already Know), W (what the students are Wondering) and L (what they Learn).
