For the next few weeks we will be working on reading and writing informative books. We will be focused on learning about animals. The students will be gathering information during reading time and organizing their information to not only increase their comprehension, but also be able to organize their writing into chapters that potentially could include subtopics as well. Today the students looked at a book as a class, books in small groups, and then individual animal books to practice making predictions prior to reading and then checking their predictions as they read. You may want to ask your child about what animal they chose and information they are starting to learn about their animal.
