Today after a long morning of testing, Mrs. Doyle's and my Language Arts classes read together Chapters 6, 7, and part of 8 in Titanic: Voices from the Disaster. Students had a lot of flexibility in how they recorded their thinking in their readers notebooks.
Requirements for responses:
- When Ms. Reed and I come around to look at notebooks (we listened to the CD today, which gave us some flexibility to work beside students), we should be able to get good insights into what you're thinking and be able to respond to what you've written.
- When we review tomorrow, you should be able to look back on your notes and remember the important things that happened with today's reading.
Check out the ways our readers recorded their thinking:
|Ms. Reed's sticky notes that show a mix of pictures and interesting/important facts|
|Erin's list of important events and her reactions|
|Troy's pictures to go with important events in the chapter|
|Miss Reed's KNOW/WONDER chart (her handwriting is way more legible than mine!)|
QUESTIONS: What did your readers notebook look like today? Which of the notebook methods above do you think might work for you?
