nonfiction writing features - illustrations

During our nonfiction writing unit I created this writing goals chart..
As I introduced nonfiction writing features, 
they were added to the chart. 
Every day my students picked which feature 
they were going to include in their writing that day.
Here is Chloe's book about pufferfish. 

She included a table of contents and more than one picture on a page in her book.

  1. Wow! What a great idea!! I love this.

    And, Chloe did a great job! :)


  2. Great interactive idea to motivate children to set writing goals. I will be trying this out for sure. There was a restaurant when I used to live in San Luis Obispo that had a puffer fish. While chowing on tacos we would try to get it to puff up! He was way too mellow for our college shenanigans.

    Thanks for the great ideas!
