Our readers are getting connected to the characters in their books! We are paying careful attention to how our character’s act to identify their feelings and traits. Using sticky notes to mark where a character has a strong feeling or if the character does something unpredictable helps our readers connect to characters.
We are also growing our conversations during our partner talk. We leave thinking tracks through our reading and come prepared to share with our partner a thought, an interesting character behavior, a lesson or what they would do if they were the character.
It is amazing to see and hear the conversations that are happening as well as the care and attention the children give to their reading. *proud teacher :)*
