2011-NFL-Week-1-Picks1The DES 5th grade took a break from working on Hatchet book reports this Wednesday. The class completed a close read on an informational text about the NFL. The students enjoyed reading about this topic. . .SCORE for Mrs. Wilson!

The before activity was a KWL chart. Cooperative learning groups came up with one thing they knew (K) about the NFL and one thing they wanted (W) to know about NFL. After the close read, learning groups came up with one thing they learned (L) about the NFL from the text.

The students also completed comprehension responses after the close read. The DES 5th grade will be integrating more and more informational text as we progress toward becoming college and career ready!
