Reading Expository Text and Procedural Writing

This week we began reading some nonfiction articles and learned how to take notes and write our thinking as we read. I think everyone enjoyed the informational text we read from Time for Kids and National Geographic Kids!

We also began learning about procedural writing. This is writing that explains how to do something. We practiced putting the steps in order first, then moved on to writing our own steps. Next week everyone will be writing their own procedural essay!
