Reflection: High Quality Task Captivating Captions - Section 2: Cooperative Captions


Students created various captions to go along with the articles they read.  One student read about lion cubs from Korea (see resource).  She was able to produce an original caption that goes along with the story accurately detailing the information she read on the caption.  Picture reading is engaging, especially at this age.  My students love comic strips and cartoons.  They also have prior knowledge from earlier grades with picture walks, when students get the opportunity to create stories from picture prompts.  Students seem to enjoy this activity as observed by high levels of engagement and productivity.
