Retelling

We use the cards to help retell the story!  This provides great practice for oral language as well as noticing details in the story.

Sometimes it is helpful for students to listen to another example of fluent reading and I simply love Awnie’s House!  Check out her version of I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More!

 

Inferring

Students also work on inferring!  We had some discussion in our Facebook Group about process vs. product.  I want to just give my perspective.   These units are reading comprehension units.  The idea is to involve students in deep comprehension conversations and thinking.  As an added bonus, we also ask students to respond to the text.  This is an opportunity for students to make their thinking known.  Some students express themselves with pictures, while others use a combination of pictures AND words.   We have to take students where they are.  This is not a sentence writing unit.  Naturally, through the interactive writing lessons, we move closer and closer to standardize writing.
