The past few weeks we have been talking about using our "schema" to make connections. Schema includes things we know and experience that we can use to help us understand the story. There are 3 types of connections we focused on:
Text to Self
Text to Text
Text to World
Today, Students were able to make a Text to Text connection using the books Little Oink and Little Hoot by Amy Krouse Rosenthal. We found quite a few similarities between the books.
Some students made Text to Self connections by connecting with the characters with these books as well.
Yesterday we practiced making Text to Self connections using the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. In groups we wrote "This book reminds me of...because..." to help us make connections that are meaningful to our reading.
What have we learned?
This blog is created to showcase what we're learning throughout the school year.
