After some technical difficulties today, we watched a short video called Hola Llamigo. This fit in perfectly since we are still talking about Hispanic Latino Heritage Month, and because we started talking about the l sound. We watched the video and I modeled a think aloud, asking questions to clarify what was happening in the video. I was asking questions about what I wondered about, which is what we want our children to do in reading, but also in any area where they are learning new information. We also looked for clues in the film, just like we are doing in the stories we are reading in Benchmark. Studying the illustrations and photographs in books leaders to deeper understanding. We talked about the characters in the story and how the boy's feelings changed throughout the story, and how what we thought about the man changed at the end of the story. I hope you enjoy this story!
Have a nice evening!
