Writing Biographies - Part 4 Publishing


Part 4

The students have been working hard reading and researching about their person of choice!  They are learning so much and so excited!

One little girl ran up to me and said, "Did you know that Clara Barton was born on Christmas Day! I need to put this on the timeline!"

 

It's important to model how to write complete sentences from their recording sheets.  If you do not take time to do this students will copy word for word from their recording sheets.  This will mean they will either copy it from the book or write an incomplete sentence.

This student researched Dr. Seuss.  She has some spelling issues but she has been finding some great facts.



After she filled out the recording sheets she chose what kind of paper she wanted to use to write her report.  I offer the children many different types of paper.


Each paper choice has a spot for a heading.  These headings get transferred to the Table of Contents!





 Students love filling out the About the Author page!



Students look at a photo or drawing of their person and they draw on the cover with pencil.  After they are done they trace the drawing with Sharpie.  This helps bring out the details and helps when they color.
