Activity #5: Independent Reading Time & Demonstrating Fluency

You will read from the assortment of nonfiction titles in your Raz-Kids bookshelf for a minimum of 20-30 minutes. During which, you will respond to the 3 big questions that we should ask ourselves when reading nonfiction text as a note entry in Seesaw.

  1. What surprised me about one of the nonfiction books I read today?
  2. What did the author think I already knew?
  3. What challenged, changed, or confirmed what I already knew?

After writing the answers to these 3 questions down in your Seesaw Learning Journal, you will choose one of these questions to explain using audio. To do this, you will click on the microphone icon in your text entry for this assignment.I will dismiss a few students at a time to go into the hallway and record.
