This week our second graders have been diving into non fiction books. It has been amazing to see the new learning that has occured as well as the non fiction comprehension strategies that are being used.
A non fiction retell is different from a fiction retell in that we retell the facts that we have learned not a sequence of events. For that reason, we use a very important tool called a sticky note ( fancy tool huh? :)). As we read from non fiction text, we leave our thinking tracks by writing on the sticky note our “learnings” and what we could teach others. We talk about our learning with our reading partners, Mrs. Kuieck and our class. I am so proud of our little readers! Check out this sticky note FULL of learning :).
