Jot note templates are provided with support questions and without. In addition, students can use the included templates to write an “About the Author” page. The jot note templates match the included draft and final report templates. Blank jot note templates are also included if you want to customize the categories for your students.
There are three different draft templates included in this package of materials. There are half page templates for students who are only finding one fact about each category. Full page templates are provided to students who are finding two or three facts. In addition, students who are ready to write paragraphs can use the third template. This template encourages students to write an opening sentence and a closing sentence, in addition to the factual information they gather in their jot notes. Templates are included with both primary lines and regular lines. Blank draft templates are available if you chose to customize the Arctic animal report. Choose the option that best supports the students in your class.
