Informative writing

We are just finishing our informative writing unit and it is amazing how easily my students are going through non-fiction books and finding facts and ideas. They just love it!!  But, it was not like that from the beginning :(  It has been a long way since introducing the word "fact" and have them make sense of what it really meant.

I used this graphic organizer since the very first time we started reading informative texts, and it helped my kiddos a ton! After the first couple of weeks they were masters of facts and main ideas!




After a while we started using it for their research projects, so they could outline their ideas and then put them together in their reports. 

I thought it would be helpful to share it, with so many of us trying to hit those Writing standards!!

It includes an English and a Spanish version. Hope you find it useful!!!
