Close Reading with High Interest Text: CCSS and Pokemon Go!

Screen Shot 2016-09-11 at 8.37.07 PMThe students were hard at work “diving” into the Pokemon Go! text in class…high interest, real-world connections, & a whole lot of learning.  This assignment addressed the RI.5.2 (Reading-Informational text) to determine the main ideas of the text & explaining how it was supported by important details.  They also worked on RI.5.4 to identify new vocabulary words that were important to understand.  They worked in pairs to collaborate as they read and took annotations on their article to build on understanding.  iPads were at the ready to assist to learn new words too.  The students then captured themselves reading aloud to practice fluency and be able to evaluate themselves and begin to document their progress!  See the learning below!
