During Readers' Workshop this week, we explored different ways to share our stories. After spending time independently reading, partners turned elbow-to-elbow and shared their favorite part of a book, or a really interesting part, or a part that taught them something. Our goal was to make connections to text in different ways.
The reading partners do such a tremendous job taking in what their partner is saying, and really getting engaged with their text. Next week, the students will make connections between their texts and their own experiences.
