Students were learning a new strategy of note taking a few weeks ago in class that focused on using illustrations and little icons along with words, called Sketchnoting. We discussed how these quick illustrations, words, using different fonts, and different sizes of fonts can help us to remember important information! I love it when students put learning into ACTION! Here Leigh Ann is BUSTED for doing just that!
Recently, students were working on reading an article on Trophy Hunting from newsela as we begin learning about writing argument papers…taking a stance and supporting it. Great note taking is an important part of our learning process for this purpose. Leigh Ann walked up to me today to share her notes! She chose to practice her sketch noting on her own. You go Girl!
