Just a quick update today! We were talking about making text-to-self connections today. We watched a story on Storyline, which I will link below, that was about friendship. The book read was Chester's Way, by Kevin Henkes. We stopped along the way to talk about what was happening in the story and if we were making any connections. We know that we will not have a text-to-self connection with every book, but many children were able to relate to friends doing the same things, which was a big part of this book. Another important lesson from the book is that you need to get to know someone before you know if they might be a friend for you. We talked about making snap decisions based on what someone looks like.
Your child is bringing home an index card with a connection they made, or a picture of their favorite part of the story. Ask me to tell you about my picture. Also, ask me to show you how we say text-to-self connection with our hands.
Have a nice evening!
