In reading we are studying about nonfiction text. We started by first taking a look at all the different features that can be found in nonfiction texts and how they help the reader understand the text. Students then created a poster displaying examples of some of the text features and what each feature means.
To celebrate presidents day students created child size president posters. Student pairs had to select a president and then use resource books to research about the president life. They worked really hard and did a wonderful job. If you get a chance stop in and check them out.
