Plant Books

Working with our wonderful librarian we have been writing books about plants. We began by looking at lots of plant books and making lists of what we learned. Next, we wrote a book together about plants (I'll get it posted as soon as possible). Back in the library we explored the different parts of non-fiction books (title, author, table of contents, pictures, captions, index, glossary, etc.). After that we added a table of contents to our class book. During this time the students wrote books of their own about plants. On our next visit to the library we shared and celebrated all of our books. The books, our class one and individual ones, will remain in the library for others to enjoy.
