Learning About School Helpers During Back To School

The last few weeks we have been working hard on responsibilities that we have and that other’s have in our school community.  We use a book we made based off of Brown Bear, Brown Bear called School, School, What Do You See?  Each day over the last two weeks we have read the book together (the packet comes with a customizable slideshow to use on your white board) and discussed one person’s responsibilities in our school…we charted their responsibilities as our shared research.  In the past, we’ve had each person from our school come and speak to us about their job as well–the kids love this!

The kids can use these charts to reference too during their writing as well!  For kinder babies, these anchor chart templates would be perfect for adding pictures of each person with their name written on the chart also!

Then, we use the anchor charts to write about each person’s responsibilities in our booklet.  **Isn’t this puddle of tears just too cute??**

We usually work on informative writing with this book and they write a topic sentence with a detail about that person’s responsibilities.  This year, our district is asking us to focus on opinion writing first, so we just changed the writing to have an opinion sentence first and one reason sentence.  As you will see in next week’s plans, we will move to a full opinion paragraph.
