Introduction to Drawing Books
Introduce the concept of following step by step
Copy ONE page out of the drawing books and draw together in class. It is ok if you don't draw perfect! Show them they shouldn't be afraid!
Have other copied pages for students to try at their desk. You will want to copy some pages because we don't have THAT many books.
2nd Grade Research Report
Divide the class into 2 segments so one side can pick 1 day to draw. The other side can pick one day to research.
Students should pick a dinosaur to research (you can have them pick dinosaurs names out of a hat if you want).
The dinosaur report gives some ideas that kids might want to write down about their dinosaur.
Model reading one dinosaur book to write notes about your dinosaur.
Students then draw and research.
Students flip flop. Complete another readaloud of a dinosaur book and writing down notes about the dinosaur.
Pay no attention the (wo)man behind the curtain!
