Reading skills

Posted: September 19, 2011 in Uncategorized

In RLA (Reading Language Arts) we have been talking a lot about the skills of good readers. One of the ones we have been really focused on is the fact that good readers THINK about what they are reading. They don’t just read it and forget it but htey take the time to really inderstand the text. One strategy that we are using is post-it notes. We like to have them handy and as we are reading we tear them off, write down any thoughts, questions, connections, predictions that we have at that partictular moment in the book. We then put it right there onto the page. This allows us to remember just what we were thinking when we were reading and gives us the opportunity to be more effective at sharing our thoughts about books and reading. Today Ishan is going to share some of his post – it notes.
