Since I am using something from the past, I decided it was a good day to link back to Hope's Take Me Back Tuesday!
Back to 01/17/2012
Before we left for winter break we worked on creating our Polar Folders.
It was time to learn about Text Features and I wanted to make something they could refer back to at any given time in an easy way. I want it accessible. It is easier to open a file folder, than trying to search inside a composition notebook.
I taught a text feature. Students looked for that text feature in their book and using the booklet sheets they recorded what they learned from the text feature of the day (no pictures). It was so nice to see them make the connection between the text feature and their actual learning.
I created THIS for our Polar Folders. Text Features are something I will review once we get back, but the Polar Bear Edition was well received :)
I hope you love it! All you need are file folders and THIS :)
My class finished their Nonfiction Folders. This is what we did today:
We then made labels of each text feature using our scented markers. Yeap...lots of sniffing at that time :)
Tex Feature hunting and labeling to make sure we can identify all of the 13 text features.l We used books from our browsing boxes.
Simple, fun, engaging and full of learning. Ahhhh I love half days :)
