    Jenni – and as you and I know – they LOVE the collaboration and creativity of the Intellectual Art activity…such a fun way to close-up our unit and create a memorable, meaningful piece that they actually want to KEEP:)

    Amanda – I am so excited for the coming year – where we will collaborate and plan together. Imagine all the engagement and insight our interactions will spark this summer:) Welcome!

    Allison S.- I agree, that is a challenge. Some students read more quickly than others and even if I plan my groups according to the length of that particular group’s chapter – there are always some students needing more time. There are days where the groups that have longer chapters do not meet until the following day, or they meet for a brief time and then continue their reading.

    Jenni – I agree! I look forward to implementing the many Word Play activities as well as those mentioned by you. Providing students with a variety of contexts and opportunities to master the vocab. which consequently produces more “mental energy” for reading comprehension!

    I agree, Megan – and would welcome tips as we model for younger students. Also at times I feel as though I start to lose the kids’ interest – or I have those who blurt out the answers as I speak the questions aloud to myself. All things I plan to refine this next school year:)

    Yes! I came to that conclusion as well – it is not merely “Does the reader understand what they have read?” or “Can they regurgitate a simple answer?”

    Yes, Amy. This makes so much sense – something to keep in mind when teaching all subject matter!
