* We worked on making connections between texts on the same topic. We read some nonfiction, fiction, and poetry texts on hermit crabs this week and we saw that sometimes texts tell us the same information as other texts and sometimes there might be new information. We again discussed that even fiction books and poetry can teach us about a topic if we are reading closely. At home when your child reads to you have them make connections using phrases like "This reminds me of..." or "This book is like/different from that book because..." This will help improve their comprehension of what they read. Readers are always making connections and comparisons as they read.
