So…I was sitting in superintendent's day this week and I was sitting next to a co-worker. We were all bored out of our minds (shhh..don't tell). I look over, and he is holding this book. Now, it was extremely random but of course, my mind started thinking of how great this book would be for my students. (Why was he holding this book, NO CLUE….if you know this coworker, you wouldn't be surprised).
Anyway!! This was the book he was holding:
- Teaching non-fiction texts. Use graphic organizers to help students pull out important information.
- Building vocabulary
- Predicting and inferring
- Categorization: there are several “stories” related to similar themes/categories. Can students group them together?
- EET!! Students can use their EET to describe the different items being talked about such as a spider web, dinosaurs, and more.
