This is a great tool to use with students to demonstrate how get their brain “ready to read” a Non-Fiction book. I wanted to show them how when you read, your brain needs to be actually DOING something, not just reading the words (although that part is important as well).
This unit includes a set of thought bubbles to glue onto popsicle sticks that can then be attached to your brain hat using velcro. Directions on how to create your own Brain Thinking Hat are included, and more detailed information can be found on my blog at http://thebookfairygoddess.blogspot.com/2014/03/reading-brain-hat-for-non-fiction.html
Included in this unit are thought bubbles for: How Can I Learn New Information, Table of Contents, Index, Glossary, Keywords, and Headings
It also includes a student Non-Fiction Text Features Hunt to use with Non-Fiction books as well as a bookmark to give to students for review.
**Updated on 10/6/2015 to include copies of pages to include the alternate spelling of "color" as "colour".
All items come in color and in black and white.
