Creating Variety in Your Reading

What are Jenison Elementary teachers doing today?  All JPS elementary teachers including Pinewood staff are learning more about literacy today.  Literacy is reading, writing, and speaking.  All students who have been participating in NFL learning this summer have been working on their literacy skills.  How can you keep improving on those skills without getting board with your reading?  This week for your NFL learning think about trying something new.  Read informational text instead of fiction.  What is informational text?  Its non-fiction, or writing that is based on facts and reality.

What are some ideas for informational text?  Read a recipe and make a a meal or snack with your family.  Read an article from a magazine or newspaper and talk about it with a friend or family member.  Find something your interested in and search for a how to video then try it, talk about it, and write about it.  If you have been practicing soccer, trying to teach your pet a trick, creating a cool decoration for your room.  With your parent you can search for a how to video or guide online and then give it a try.

If you try a recipe or find a something interesting share it with me and I will post it on the blog, if you like it lots of other students will too.
