Second Graders Are Nonfiction Readers and Writers!

We have moved into reading and writing nonfiction during our literacy workshops.  During reading we are learning different strategies for accumulating information before, during, and after reading.  We are learning how to use what we are noticing and wondering to predict and confirm what we are learning.  During writing we are learning how to think about a topic we know a lot about and then turn that information into chapter books.  We will learn how to add tables of contents, labeled diagrams, fun facts, glossaries, and other nonfiction text features into our writing.

Here we are working on a nonfiction project based upon information we have noticed, wondered, and learned from our books.
