We were able to work on our Informative Bee writing this week. My little animal lovers had such a fun time learning and writing all about bees. After they read the story, "Honey Bees" from Reading Street they were given a graphic organizer to record facts about bees. I also had students reading a variety of bee books during our small group reading time. It was during our small group time that I was really able to assist students in filling out their graphic organizers. Which, of course, I didn't take a picture of. It is included in my honey bee informative writing packet though. Once the students had 6 facts written down they chose their favorite 3 facts and we turned that into a paragraph. I think my little firsties did a fantastic job.
