Informational Writing Now on Display

Morse School third graders recently completed the informational writing unit. For their final project, students wrote books on a subject of their choice. Students went through all the stages of writing, from prewriting and research, to a rough draft, to revision and editing, and finally to publication.

All third graders have access to Chromebooks and created their books using Google Docs. They used the computers for research and writing. Students learned how to find and insert pictures, tables, maps, and diagrams into their documents. They also learned how to create borders, text boxes, and to layout their pages.

Students worked collaboratively with each other as they’ve done all year. Students met with their writing partners to help edit and revise their work. They also met together to discuss ideas and support each other throughout the writing process.

Students are incredibly proud of their finished products. The books are currently on display in the Morse School library. Stop by and check out the amazing books the students created. You’re guaranteed to learn something new!
