Use paint cards for teaching the Common Core Language standard about "Shades of Meaning"

This is one of my now-favorite sites for Writer's Workshop ideas! Mini lessons, genre units (complete with publication and celebration!!), writer's notebook setup (binderized!), and more! Uh-mazing!

This is an outline for my grade 4 students to follow as they compile jot notes while researching the poison dart frog, but any animal can be used. Once students have all their information, they will put their information on a large piece of construction paper folded in half like a booklet. Their cover includes the name of the animal and a picture. This teaches them research skills, report writing while learning about an animal. $

Lol, Leave it on a day that you don't tell your students you will be absent. Students would love this!!

Tons of shape book templates
