Non-Fiction Writing

Over the next couple weeks we will be completing Report Writing in Writer’s Workshop. During this time we will be learning about non-fiction conventions (glossary, captions, headings, etc.) and different types of non-fiction books such as question/answer books. One of our favorite authors of non-fiction is Gail Gibbons. We would love to have a variety of her books to teach from through this unit. If you are willing to purchase one or more of her titles, our boys and girls would really love it! We would appreciate any support you are able to provide. Her books can be purchased on-line from the major book stores and range in price from about $7.00 to $15.00. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
