Report Writing in Kindergarten


We have just completed our "Report Writing" genre. Taught in tandem with Reader's Workshop (learning about the conventions of nonfiction - table of contents, close ups, captions, etc.), students were invited to write their own nonfiction books. Our young writers were encouraged to report on things that they are familiar. These included "All About Dogs", "All About School", "All About My Family", and "All About TV Shows" to name a few. The one featured below is an "All About Chores." Kallyn was very excited about this topic because she said she knows lots about chores and can teach people about them. We hope you learn lots about how to keep your house clean and tidy by reading and learning from Kallyn's report!
