This week English Class third graders learned about baby Moses being hidden in the bulrushes in their religion class. At the same time they learned how to pick out key words from text to help them distinguish between the most important and least important information. It is essential for pupils to be able to recognize important points in content text. This practical reading strategy enables them to extract important information from less important distracting details and description, which is an invaluable study skill.
For homework the pupils drew comic strip depictions of the story, as can be seen from the few examples included here. Click the photos to better be able to read the text.
