Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Illustrations ‘stick’ to the text and support the ideas - Section 5: Apply What You've Learned!


I love teaching informational text because I’m covering reading and social studies at the same time. It’s also great to reinforce our social studies curriculum with a text from reading. The kids have so much more to bring to our reading lessons when they have concepts they’ve learned in social studies. In this lesson, there were several teachable moments that allowed me to cover vocabulary from the story (such as ‘wigwam’ or ‘tepee’) that we’ll take back to our social studies learning.
