Grade 2 students are working hard to deepen their knowledge of how to read non fiction. We have learned about the different text features authors use in non fiction books (Table of Contents, headings, maps, captions, glossary, index, etc.) and why they are important. Students have been able to find these text features in different books and identify their purpose as well as create their own text feature examples in their own non fiction writing.
2nd graders have also blogged their Non Fiction text feature examples. Be sure to check out your child’s personal blog! Click here ————> Student Bloggers Link
Take a moment to ask your child: What are some non fiction text features and why are they used?
Grade 2 students went through the entire writing process to persuade readers on their opinion about SAS. They then worked on their speaking skills by using an iPad app called Pupped Pals. We learned about how speakers make sure to have a fluent voice with appropriate speed and volume as well as have emotion and read the punctuation of their writing. Take a look at their videos and see if you hear some great speakers, like I do. 🙂
