It’s a new school year, and today is Wednesday… it’s time for a new WRITING WEDNESDAY!


Today, we’re going to look at a Seymour Simon book that is an old favorite.


As you read the pages below, about our sense of sight, think about all the different ways that Seymour Simon and illustrator Dennis Kendrick provide information to the reader.




Now that you’ve read these pages, think about the organization of this text. How does it support your learning? For example, are their captions, diagrams or illustrations that help your understanding? Does the design of the pages make a difference? How this book is different from other informational text you have read?

If you need to, go back and read again, and then write several sentences about which features of this particular informational text you think are most helpful to understanding more about your sense of sight.

When you have finished writing, click on the yellow "Comments" link at the bottom of this blog post to paste in your writing for others to see.

As Professor IQ would say, "Every day is a good day to explore!"

Note for Educators: Seymour Simon’s book is part of the affordable, streaming, narrated eBook collection from StarWalk Kids Media. Click here if you would like to learn more about subscribing to this high quality, affordable collection of Common Core mentor texts.
