Ask Me About Tuesday, October 17, 2017
In reading we are working on answering questions from the text that are "right there" questions. We are working on this in responding to books read in reading groups. The children are learning to find key details in the text that answer a question. Depending on the level of reader, the questions and answers vary with complexity. The important part now is that they learn to locate the information and formulate an answer. I model this as we read books in whole group, as well as in reading groups. The children are learning to go back to the text or illustrations to find the answers. They are orally answering, contributing to a shared writing which means they are helping to create the answer as I write it for the group on chart paper, or drawing and writing or orally responding to show they know.
Have a nice evening!
