Part of becoming a strong reader is learning to pick books that fit you as a reader. A book should interest the child, but should also challenge him/her as a reader, but not so much that he/she can't comprehend the book. I definitely want to have a poster like this in my class someday because I want to do all I can to help my students become better readers.
I love Read & Make! - 2nd post in the series. 23 books about fall with great crafts to do after reading.
SYNTHESIZING - The next day, we talked about making Synthesis Sundaes. I mean, seriously…who doesn’t love ice cream?!?! I introduced this anchor chart and then we read “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein. I think this is a GREAT story to teach synthesizing!!
