Literary Foundations: Bear Research

What do you wonder?
  • Putting Your Thoughts on Paper: Bear research while recording new information.
  • Gathering materials: family learning journals, pencils, colored pencils, 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.
  • Reading and Writing Connection: Discuss what is their prior knowledge about bears.
  • Next: Read and discuss some of the new informational facts from the slide above. Guide them to use re-create one of the research templates located on the left of the slide (if they know how to use a K-W-L chart or a Venn diagram, encourage them to design their favorite template).
  • Drafting responses: Allow each family member to write their new learnings and “I Wonders.” (10 min). Encourage the youngest members to draw their thoughts and assign someone to be their scribe.
  • Finally: Discuss: Let each family member share their “Bear” research. Remind them that respectful listeners make eye contact with the person sharing without interrupting.
