Their noticings??? The things I overhead were: wanting to know the name of the boy in the wheelchair (he was unnamed), wanting to know more details about the story, how the boy first got in the wheelchair, what they were like at age five themselves, and predicting about what would happen next.
We charted two columns: (please note, I helped sophisticate their language)
What did we do?
- Asked questions
- Connecting to text
- Wanted to know more
- Thinking about before the story
- Filled in a puzzle in our heart, minds, and books
- See better pictures, saw flashbacks, stronger tie to story and will remember it
- Got mind ready to read
I'm excited to continue on this journey of reading workshop. We're going to study for the next couple of week on inferences...should be great!!!
