Yesterday I promised I would show pictures of our latest work on schema. Here they are!
|This is my anchor chart of Ronald doing his job of being a wise reader!|
|Here is Ronald's brain - he sure is a busy thinker! We just added schema to it last week.|
|This is my brain and all the files in my head. I used this to show students that when we organize all the experiences we have, we put them into little files in our brains.|
|Then my students write about the things they have schema for.|
Then my lovely neighbor across the way introduced her students to Willamina the Writer. I LOVE this. I think Willamina will be paying my class a visit very soon!
Here is an outline for when I teach schema & connections. It's based off of Debbie Miller's book Reading with Meaning, or I as call it "the bible".
