This week in reading, we continued our focus on habits of a good reader to become SUPER SMART about NONFICTION topics. We worked hard to think about the facts that we had learned while we were reading and spent time sharing them with our classmates. To make sure that we were sharing facts in a way that would be interesting to our friends, we practiced reading them smoothly, trying our best to sound like a teacher or a news reporter.
We also began to review different ways to figure out tricky words in our nonfiction books. Our new poster has a lot of strategies that reminded us of our animal friend decoding strategies we used for our fiction books.
