We started off with my favorite activity, writing a reader response!
We started off by reading Skippyjon Jones, and then moved onto the response portion of the day.
This year though, I taught them to answer using ACE-I want them to get it right from the very beginning!
We worked on our response together.
I sent them off to work on their own and most of them did pretty well!
After school, I turned what I had on the board into our first reading anchor chart!
We had a lot of notebook entries to set it up!
Interested in the NB entries? You can go here for a freebie!
After we FINALLY finished putting everything in, I wanted to do Young Teacher Love's comprehension lesson.
I started out by just putting the word on the board, and we created a web of what they thought of the word when they heard it.
I also did one for schema-a word a use a lot!
After we finished brainstorm, I explained what each meant.
I started with schema, since you have to use your schema to help you comprehend!
Of course, it wouldn't be a lesson without an anchor chart!
As we learn different comprehension strategies, we'll add them to the bottom of our poster!
Next up, we are going to try literacy rotations-if I can manage to squeeze down the lesson-I forgot how long it takes with a new group!
Linking up with Jivey's awesome...
