To practice remembering information from nonfiction reading and add to our Nonfiction November wall, we read Actual Size by Steve Jenkins in Kindergarten, and then brainstormed together the awesome animal facts students heard. Then each student chose one favorite fact to draw on our nonfiction November fact sheet. They proudly posted their "facts" on the wall in the Kindergarten section. A great fact hunting expedition!
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.
