Literary Foundations: Making Connections

Where do you begin reading?
  • Nonfiction reading is a great source of graphs, diagrams, tables, charts, etc. Visual literacy is an an important skill for your students to have, especially in science and math.
  • Critical reading is a skill in which the reader is engaged with the resource to gain new information, to explore new techniques, and/or to discover the steps in a process. Readers will predict, question, and re-read while they are engaged with the text/passage.
  • Making the family connection: Discuss: What do you know about these Arctic animals?
  • Materials: family learning journals/paper, pencils, colored pencils, and/or crayons
  • Remind them to open their journals to the next available page and date it. Don’t forget to have them label the top of the page with today’s learning topic/skill.
  • Today’s literary connection: subject. Guided enquiry: “Which animal would you like to learn more about?”
  • Next: Place a hold on a non-fiction book from Fort Vancouver Regional library for further discoveries: FVRL link
