For the last three weeks, we have been learning about China in first grade! We've had a blast reading all kinds of books about China! Yesterday and today, we studied pandas. My first graders were obsessed with these cute and curious animals! We made text-to-text connections and practiced asking and answering questions when reading fiction and nonfiction books. The two books we used were National Geographic for Kids Giant Pandas by Anne Schrieber and Little Panda by Renita Liwska. You can download the KWL chart that we used for both books and the close reading activity for the National Geographic book here! Enjoy!
