It's report time in the 2nd grade!
This year is the first year that second grade has to write a research report. When I first heard this my jaw hit the ground! I was thinking how am I going to get these students to write a research paper when I can barely get them to write a complete sentence? I was put to ease when I found out it was a whole group research report.
In two weeks we are going to start the process of learning to write a research based paper and then actually writing a report about the Moon as a class. I started to look ahead at the resources provided by the school district and what I found did not fit my needs and the needs of my students. So.... I did what I always do when I am faced with resources that just don't meet my standards. I created my OWN!
Below are pictures of a couple of the pages that I created to aid in this long process. The entire 11 page packet is available on my TPT and TN stores.

This page is to be either filled out for a group paper or an individual. This is for picking a big topic and then narrowing it down to what will be discussed in the paper.
This pages teaches about what a sources is and deciding what makes a good source and why.
There is a sheet that goes along with all the steps of writing a research report. I hope you all enjoy this item!
