    The site that I found today was called Like to Read. There is all kinds of information that pertains to teaching reading on this site. When I went to Determining Importance Karen Haag had information on I Search Paper. This sounds like a great way for students to use research and then reflect on the process. The first link is to Like to Read and the second to a page about I Search Papers.

  3. I found this non-fiction notebook that would be good when first teaching the text features on non-fiction and how those help you to determine important information in what is read.

    This was a hard one to find fun, new ideas for teaching this concept, but I did find the following website that has some good ideas.

  6. I really liked the ideas at Liketoread.com. Some I’ve used before and some were brand new to me. I especially liked the idea of the suitcase.

    I also spent some time learning about a strategy called Power Thinking, which is another way for kids to determine importance by grouping ideas.

    In science I like the students to use Notebooking to keep their thoughts and notes. This site has many visuals to help better understand what a good science notebook looks like.

  8. I liked the Into the Book site because it had a variety of ideas on how to summarize.

    It also had videos you could use as part of your mini lesson. (Some videos are the same)
