Celebrating Accountable Independent Reading Homework in Grade's 3 and 4

Lizards by: Laura Marchs
Prompt: What are the most important facts you learned from reading?
Three things I found that make the book Lizards a non-fiction book are True facts, a table of contents and definitions. For example, the Komodo Dragon is the largest lizard, which is a true fact. This book also had "Tail Terms," which are definitions of words used in the book. Prey is defined as an animal eaten by another animal. All these things make a book non-fiction.
Praise! This is an extraordinary response that you put a great deal of effort into. Fantastic details.
Push! How about trying a new prompt next time!?

Who Would Win Tarantula vs Scorpion by
Prompt: What is the most interesting fact you learned today? Why?
The most interesting fact I learned in Who Would Win was a speshel kind of scorpion. This scorpion is not like other scorpions, it is the king of all scorpions. It is called the emperor scorpion. The reason the emperor scorpion is the king of all scorpions, is because they are the biggest. The emperor scorpion can get up to 8 inches long. Another reason why the emperor scorpion rules the others scorpions is because they also have the strongest venom. Anything the emperor scorpion touches it will most likely be dead. This is the most interesting fact I learned about scorpions, I hope you liked it, have a great day.
Praise! This is wonderful! You gave so many facts about the emperor scorpion.
