About Advanced Reading
1. Read and Understand
Read and understand includes reading the selection and asking questions that help you understand the reading. The examine stage involves rereading and looking for evidence to back up your answers and opinions. Lastly, create is a time to write or occasionally make another product about what you have read.
I am also guiding the children on how to evaluate their own best work. We talk about what quality work involves and how to tell what is your own best work. Throughout the year students will have many chances to select what is their own best work.

With supplies dwindling, Pattie and her sister decide to take the one chance that might make life possible on Shine."
