- We are learning that reading is a lot like watching movies. We visualize or act out the stories in our minds. We learned that avid readers need to pay close attention to the story to better understand what the main character is thinking and feeling. This enabled us to start improvising what characters might say. We wrote our own speech and thought bubbles and placed them in our books.
- Students were introduced to Reading Playdates, in an effort to get them to have more fun when engaging in discussions and activities involving their reading. During reading playdates, students get together in partnerships to play games like pretend school and acting out scenes from their books.
