Reading groups are beginning! As we read, we will write some of our thoughts down on our sticky notes. Our bookmark is divided into three sections: Important Information, Questions I Have, and What I Liked. It’s important for kids to not only read, but to talk and write about what they are reading. It helps them to understand a deeper meaning within the text and come away with insight gained from talking about their own thoughts and listening to other people talk about the same text. If you are reading a book together at home, make sure you talk about it as you read! Ask questions, and ask them to describe things that happened, or predict what may happen. The sticky notes we create will be saved in our Reader’s Notebooks. Kids can look back at things they wrote and compare and contrast books throughout the year. I. Love. Reading. Groups.
