Lead Literacy Teachers Rock!
Keepin' on with TDQ's
Let's look at "What Good Looks Like" in Kindergarten. From Vickie Bernstein at Camelback Desert
Here is another example of evidence of text dependent questions from my K classroom. We used the book Marcel and Farfallina to discuss how animals grow and change and also used the text in our science studies.
I asked the students the question: “What does the author say that tells us the characters are changing” and the student responses are:
He was growing. - Molly
The caterpillar needs to rest. -Ethan
She was growing too. -Heidi
Weeks went by. -Alexa
When he saw his reflection he didn’t recognize himself. -Derek
Farfallina was not herself. -Cassady
The butterfly said, “I feel uncomfortable.” -Alexa
Large goose. Strong wings. -Cassady
A very special thanks to each of the Lead Literacy Teachers!
