Our comprehension focus for this theme is monitoring understanding. This is another one of those that I feel is out of sequence, and should be more toward the end of of a cycle.
I stressed to the kids that all reads should be constantly checking for to see if they understand what they are reading, and if they don't, they need to use strategies to help them. I told them that one of my favorites is rereading, and I'll often page back on my Kindle if I'm wondering what is going on.
I just introduced this strategy, so we'll see how it goes as the week progresses. First off, I made an anchor chart to help them remember.
We will be talking more about each of the strategies that we can use to help us as the week goes on. I also created an organizer to help the kids record their thinking while they read.
This week was good overall, but it was hard (on me!) getting back into the swing of things (and adjusting my sleep schedule!) Hopefully this week will go better!
