During the first unit of reading workshop, students learned so much! For example they learned to look at the storybook pictures, make the words and pictures match, find and read snap words, re-read to remember more and use words like first, then, and next to help retell the story.
They also learned how to read privately and with partners! When the students read with a partner they practice…
- sitting side by side
- putting one book in the middle
- taking turns reading the pictures and the words
- sharing wow! pages, things they learned, and things they are curious about
- rereading to learn and notice more things
Here is a sneak peak into what that looks like 🙂
