January Pinterest Picks

Hello Fellow bloggers! I have teamed up with The Inspired Owl's Corner and Pawsitively Teaching again to bring you another installment of Pinterest Picks. This month I have decided to share with you the pins I found related to Informational Writing.

If you remember I am the Writing teacher for my cluster/team. January and part of February will be on informational writing. I teach K-2 so they will all be learning this same standard. With that being said....

Let's get to pinning!!!!!!

This first pin is one I found few months back when I was planning for each of the types of writing. This came from Amy Lemons' Step into Second Grade blog. This was a chart she created when she had an impromptu lesson on the Author's Purpose. I felt that with my students this was going to be the perfect start to the lessons. Now let me just say that we talked before break about the features in nonfiction text. So when we come back on January 5th, I will review those features and introduce this poster and the standards that I will be teaching.

This next pin is one for more reviewing of how we write paragraphs and how that plays a role  in writing informational pieces. I will use my lessons Paragraph writing unit to review with my students. You can check that out HERE. I am going to create something similar to this chart to help the students understand what is needed in an Informational piece.

I am currently in the process of creating graphic organizers that I feel will help my students to understand informational writing. I found this pin and thought this will be great with my 1st grade class. I see this as a process to help my students with drafting of their pieces. 

I am getting super pumped to get back to school and work on these pieces. I will be sharing samples on my IG and Facebook page of my students work. 

I hope that you found these very helpful and that they will give you a jumping point with your Informational Writing. 

Thanks again for stopping by. I hope that you will come again. Please hop around and check out some of the blogs and their pins. I can't wait to read myself.
