This week for Miss White reading groups we learned about finding important words & to understand what important words are.
Important words are meaning to, value, or quality. They can also be used to describe people, things, or ideas or important words that unlock new information.
First, we had to talk in a group about what important words are or are. Important words are meaning to, value, or quality. They can also be used to describe people, things, or ideas or important words that unlock new information.
Next, Miss White gave us a book to read. The book was called the hungry waves. In the story it talks about earthquakes, tsunamis, and family. When we finished reading the first page Miss White asks the question of what happened in the story. She told me “What was the definition of the bumps on the ocean they said?”. The answer was the huge black mountain.
Then, we had to go on the google document Miss White made for Group 2 – 3. Miss White said that we had to read through the questions, and she asked individual people to search up …. and look for the defined word. The options were, braided, winced, clattered, crest, mountainside, fragments, impatiently, frowned, and churning. Miss White told me “Brooke please look up the defining word for braided”. I searched it up and we had to copy and paste it into the google document comment. The reveal was “Braided is a type of finger weaving, braiding is a process of interlacing lengths of hair”.
Lastly, when we finished all of the questions and answered it, Miss White put 2 links that were connected to the google slide and we had to make a copy and write down …… We had to write down which would you choose. The options were, which would you rather interact with – sand or mud, which would be easier to confine – wave or air, which would you rather pay attention to – a puppy or your laptop, or what are you more fearful of – heights or dogs on the field? For sand or mud, I picked sand because it is basically easier to come off your skin but not mud because it’s dirty and it will stain your clothes or skin.
