Non-fiction books and Shape poems

It's officially been one month since summer vacation started.
The summer weather here is not that great, cloudy and rainy. So I'm a bit bummed about that.
Some of our English projects for the end of the year:
- writing poems
- writing own non-fiction book
The non-fiction books was total fun for the 2nd graders. We had a few mini-lessons how to take the facts read in the book and rewrite them to be our own sentences for our own books. They got really excited about writing on sticky notes and collecting their notes. And wouldn't you know it, there was a handful of students that of course were not paying attention during those mini lessons, and did their notes all wrong. They had copied directly from the book. Well I decided they would then start again. I'm so mean!

Here are a few finished book pictures. Enjoy!

Here then are two shape poems:
