How might jotting notes help us remember key information from a text?

Instead of using post-it notes, we used a graphic organiser to practice this strategy.

We took turns to read the book.

At the end of each page, we stopped to think about what we read.

Then, we recorded our key points using pictures, key words or sentences.

We discussed some of the concepts in the text. We used materials and tools around the classroom to help us recreate some of the different examples that were included in the book.

We continued to capture our thinking on paper.

We will practice this strategy as we read to gather information about the different topics we are researching.

Here is an activity the students were invited to create at home!

The book ‘It’s About Time‘ can be accessed through the app Learning A-z (RAZ)
