We can write to inform!

Hello All! The Cupcakes and Sea Stars have been very busy learning about informative writing. In honor of Fall and October, we decided to write and publish nonfiction books about the life cycle of a pumpkin. The students also learned about captions and the importance of captions in nonfiction books. We tried a little bit of peer editing too. Students read their work to their peers and were offered suggestions for changes or additions to their writing. It went very well! I am very proud of the Cupcakes and Sea Stars!
