For the past few weeks, second grade student's have been learning about the features of nonfiction or "informational" books that help the reader find or understand information. This week they completed a Scavenger Hunt using QR Codes in which they were given 10 QR codes to scan with an iPad app. Each QR code revealed a different text feature, such as the table of contents, glossary, bold words, photos with captions, charts, maps, index or the copyright page and in order to answer the questions students had to understand and use the text feature that was revealed.
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.
