In pairs again, the kiddies selected non-fiction books from the shelves and delved in, hunting for the text features we had shared about earlier.

We will be referencing our learning from today quite often in the days to come, I think.
You can grab your free copy of the Text Feature scavenger hunt (HERE).
That's all for tonight. Stay tuned for part 3 coming soon :)
Yours in teaching
