This week our schema focus was on Informational Text. We use Informational Text (or non-fiction) to get information. Each day we read a little bit of the book Frogs by Gail Gibbons. Then the students evaluated their new knowledge to create this chart:
While we were reading, a few students thought a piece of information in the book was incorrect. The book stated that frog eggs are laid underwater and showed a picture of the eggs towards the surface. A few students said the eggs should be at the bottom of the pond. One student utilized PebbleGo! to do research for us. On the pink sticky note, she wrote what she found: "Frogs lay eggs under the water." We decided this could mean anywhere under the water, including the surface and the bottom of the pond. It's great to see their minds questioning and researching! Next week will practice that research
What have we learned?
