Carthledge's Chat

We are about half way through the school year. Crazy how time flies when you are having fun! This time of the year the students are really rocking and rolling with their independent reading levels. This week I want us to focus on allowing students to Stop, Think, and React Independently as they read. Using the goals from the Small Group Lessons intervention book, we want students to:


  • Become aware of their own thinking when reading: remembering to stop, think, and react as they read; and jotting down quick thoughts they want to remember.
  • Expand their thinking by talking to each other about what they read.
  • Focus on both the content and the process and understand that both are important to deepen meaning.
