The second graders in Ms. Van Cott’s class at Great Neck Road Elementary School are studying Seymour Simon’s photo essays through interactive read alouds. Each student drew realistic pictures and wrote opinion pieces about their favorite animal. The students learned about elements of nonfiction such as table of content, glossary, bold words and photographs.
