Another fun, fabulous, and super-d-duper cute writing activity!!! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE,LOVE the book “The Important Book” by Margaret Wise Brown. It has such a pattern in it and is great to use for teaching the trait Organization.
My kiddos are preparing for our district writing assessment this week and we have been talking a LOT about good beginnings and endings. They knew about the details in the middle that they needed to add, but I thought this lesson would be PERFECT to focus on those a review of those details!
Another GREAT thing about this book is that you can tailor it to fit ANY of the curricular areas that you want. I had intended to use this book at the beginning of the year for them to write about themselves, but now that we are at the end of the year, I think it would be an awesome way to review facts they have learned about their insects (Yes, I have live mealworms in my classroom right now…they are sooooo cute!)
So, take a peek at my lesson and tell me what you think! We are going to be publishing these later this week in the lab and I will try to get up a sample soon to show you!
