Next week I am continuing teaching the thinking strategy of asking questions during my reading workshop; specifically, finding the answers to our questions. My students have been expects at paying attention to their thinking and asking questions before, during and after reading. No we are digging in and looking at ways we answer our questions. Seattle has inspired me to pull out my Seattle books and use these to help my students learn ways to answer their questions (in the text, making an inference, schema & connections). Here is a list of my favorite Seattle books:
There is an entire Larry series, includind Larry Gets Lost in Chicago, Larry Gets Lost in New York and Larry get Lost in Texas!
This story is my favorite, about an adorable big foot who is trying to find some peace and quiet!
Now for the Free part! In order to get your own copy of Wheedle on the Needle, all you need to do is comment about your favorite books for teaching Questioning or an activity you use for teaching your students the thinking strategy of asking questions.
On Friday, April 1st I will choose a lucky winner.
I cannot wait to read all your ideas!
Be sure to check back in on Tuesday, I will have a list of my top ten things from Seattle!
