A great way to access prior knowledge and see what need to be clarified when starting new topics. For younger classes, the teacher can write ideas up. For older classes, students can write on the chart or write on sticky notes! Great to keep up with over the years and see what similarities you have with students' ideals
They do mini lesson on a reading skill/behaviour/strategy that will help students be better readers. Then students do the fab4 (read to self, read to buddy, listen to reading, write about your reading). Followed by share circle where the first students who share their reading thoughts are those who applied the day's mini lesson. They also say they do a mini share between each of the fab4 times.
