On a side note that is still related…I hopped on the net to find some book covers to print for our mentor texts and kept happening upon new blogs. It took total and complete willpower NOT to check them out while at school!! Now I just have to replicate my Google image search and find them again!
Anyways, I will be sharing how the whole genre board looks in a day or two. But, in the meantime, I wanted to share a couple of signs I made for the board. I think some people may be able to use the Mentor Texts signs (shown above)…
The other sign is Student Exemplar…can anyone use this?? It looks like this:
We’re to share a sample of student work that shows a well-written report. This sign will go with the student sample writing.
Oh, that’s the part I forgot to mention. My students have been studying nonfiction text elements and report writing for this entire unit. We are currently working on animal reports and it has been a blast! I love how vested they have been in the whole process. 🙂
Anyhow, if you’d like to download the file, it is at the bottom of this post. I would love to hear if this is something you plan on using! And, if you don’t really need those items, I have something else to share…
Here are the files, if you’d like to grab them.
