First, we brainstormed things we were experts on. I loved seeing what the kids came up with.
Next, we chose one topic and made a bubble map, a simple graphic organizer to help writers think of information to include in their books.
Then, we got started on the actual book writing! Below are a few examples. A lot of kids chose to write about animals, but many also did family members and favorite toys. I love how much their writing has grown over the past few months, and these books are a great way for them to showcase it!
