How To Be A Dog or Cat: 2 Days of Informative and Creative Paragraph Writing

Learners will use graphic organizers to write TWO "how to" informative paragraphs. This is a small group virtual English class with two to four students and a class I WISH I'd had when I was learning how to write (1st, 2nd, 3rd grade).
