Wednesday's "I Wonder What Animal Sound That is?"
Reading Response Letters
~ "It's about the READER, not the book."
Our thinking is important and expressing our thoughts can be hard. Talking about our thinking is practiced every day so we feel comfortable and confident in our opinions, thoughts and feelings. After a few weeks of modeling and practicing, students wrote their first Reader's Notebook letter entry about their thinking while reading. Starting this week students will be expected to write a letter to Ms. K or Ms. F. about their thinking every other week. The planning and drafting of the letter writing will happen in class, but you may see students coming home with their assignment for revisions, editing or final drafts.
