Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Making it Real - Section 3: Guided Practice


I have to admit, the student who came up with this book can be a literary story book because it rhymed caught me off guard.  I guess I never thought of it like that.  As my students rotated through their differentiated reading groups, when they met with me I took the opportunity to point out some text features in informational texts that are usually not part of a fiction book, such as page headers and picture captions.  I pointed out that even though Hermit the Crab is cartoonish, all the information is fact, and at the end there are specific rules to keeping a hermit crab as a pet.
