Questioning While We Read

Asking questions before, during and after reading

These last two weeks, students have been working on asking questions and answering questions before, during and after reading. We have been using sticky notes to stop and jot our questions as we read chapters together. Its been fun for students to pretend to "be the teacher" by asking peers thoughtful questions about our texts.

a video on questioning

This is a great video of a teacher working on questioning before, during and after reading. It provides you with an idea of how we are asking children to be thinking while listening to books or reading on their own.

Thank you for coming to Student Led Conferences

Thank you to those who were able to come during student led conferences to visit The Reading Room. It was wonderful for your child to share their reading progress with you and to discuss next steps and goals for the remainder of the year.
