Monday: On Monday, we practiced our reading strategy to visualize while we read. As a class, we discussed how this is an important skill, because when texts get complicated it will help your comprehension to be able to make a picture in your mind. To practice this skill, we read If I Ran The Circus by Dr. Seuss. The catch was that I didn't show them any of the pictures. When we finished reading the story, each student was assigned to use the text to visualize and illustrate 1-2 pages of the text. We were amazed to see how close our visualizations came to Dr. Seuss' actual illustrations!
Wednesday: On Wednesday, Tatem School had their annual Hallway Read! The entire school dropped everything that they were doing on Wednesday afternoon to grab a good book and read in the hallway! By having everyone in our school read, it shows how important reading is and how fun reading can be!
