Our second grader readers are diving into nonfiction reading and using strategies to help them understand what they are reading/learning. We have learned to talk/think “A LOT” and read “A LITTLE”. Good non fiction readers also ask themselves questions, search out answers in other texts and share what they know. Each child is part of a book club where they are studying a topic together including gymnastics, birds, fish, Abraham Lincoln, space and butterflies. They have been keeping track of their thinking and learning using the R.A.N. Strategy (Reading and Analyzing NonFiction).
