Headers and Sub-headers

In reading we continued on with strategies for finding the meanings of words that are in a different type of print in non-fiction texts. Yesterday I introduced that you can look in the text itself (read on), look in the margins, or look in the glossary. I modeled how to keep track of my thinking when I found the word 'primatologist' in bold in a magazine I was reading.
 For guided practice, students recorded my thinking in their Thoughtful Logs on an identical chart.

In guided reading, we explored an article on Death Valley. Students completed the rest of the chart in their Thoughtful Log to serve as evidence of their ability to find the definitions of bolded words while reading.

  1. I really like how you lay out your SMARTboard lessons, and how the writing prompt in their journals mirrors that.
