During writing time, I prepared them really well. We went over the writing process of an informative piece of writing and what it entailed. (Quick shout out to my best bud, Angelica Sandoval) And during their spring break, they completed their animal reports. I must say, they turned out FAN-TAS-TIC!!
Ha! I love my little kiddos! They all made their presentations. Presentation rules were:
1. Introduce your animal,
2. Give 3 facts about your animal, and
3. Say one fun/interesting fact.
In the end, my students expressed how fun it had been making their reports. And because we also worked on reports during Black History month, my students have gotten used to that "portfolio" format. Later a student asked what we were going to do a report on next. I told him, "Rocks!"
