4th grade classes are reviewing the features of non fiction that help a reader find and understand information. After perusing books in the LMC, students located interesting diagrams, photos and captions, glossaries, fact boxes, bold words and headings, and copyright pages. Then a pair of students chose one feature, took a photo of it with an iPad, and used the app Pic Collage to create a colorful poster illuminating and explaining that feature. These will be displayed in the classroom for reference.
My Reading List!
I am the Library Media Center director at Patton School in Arlington Heights where I help students from kindergarten through 5th grade find terrific independent reading for enjoyment and information, and teach students the skills to use information and technology safely and productively and to connect, communicate and share with others. I have four grown children, a large black dog, (flat coat retriever) and a small striped cat. I am an obessive Chicago Cubs fan and I love to run.
