Biographies

Reading & Writing workshop has been so much fun! 

We completed our How To books (I learned how to make beds, sandwiches, Mexican Eggs, and how to draw an X-Box) and now we are writing biographies.

To start with, students chose a Scholastic biography which was short and sweet. Students made Flow Maps and wrote their own books. I graded them last weekend and they were great!

This week, students chose biographies that matched their reading level and interest and they are delving in deep! More to come...
My students love non-fiction so, so much and can't wait to share everything they've learned. I think all that sharing and talking is one of the main reasons their EL levels are improving!
