Hello Grade Ones! Yesterday we learned about table of contents


and glossaries. Would someone like to tell me what we learned
about those two features?

Very good class, I am going to draw a flower here and we are


going to figure out the different parts of this flower.

 What do they tell us?  They tell us important parts of what we are learning
 What do you notice about diagrams?

a picture here of someone who is really good at listening and
learning. He is sitting with his legs crossed, hand up etc. Now
you are going to cut out the labels at the bottom here and paste
them in the correct spots around the picture of our listener!

Prompt Questions: [Students will be prompted to discuss and explain diagrams


individually to the teacher to show knowledge and understanding
