|this anchor chart was created in our first unit of study|
first-graders had a TEA party celebrating the books they are reading. how do you have a tea party? all the children come to the rug and learn that at a tea party you get to chit-chat with a friend about something important to you. for this tea party students get to chit chat about some of the facts they are learning from their nonfiction books. it's tea party time!jenn serravallo's book (we 💜 this book). in the lesson below, students had to read the words, look at the picture and think, what in the picture is the same as what's in the words? what's new? next students had to try to write extra facts from looking at the picture.
|example created by the teacher|
tiny tip: we found using books with heavy picture support works best.

|plants can die and cars get ruined|
this lesson takes rereading one step further by having students read, sketch and think about adding more details to their initial thoughts. each time they sketched they thought more about what they learned and deepened their understanding about the topic.
