Read-Aloud and Reading Reflections
Read-Aloud: Thank You, Mr. Falker The book we are going to read aloud today features a teacher that made a big difference in one young girl's life. Before we read, think about an important teacher in your life. Why is this teacher so important to you? Now in your small groups have a conversation about the important teachers in your lives that made a difference. Next, as you listen to the story think about what makes Mr. Falker such a good teacher.
Reflecting on Learning to Read The story Thank You, Mr. Falker
centered around Trisha's struggles to learn to read. What is your story of learning to read? What do you remember about your journey to becoming a reader? How do you feel about yourself as a reader now? Today you will work on your own Learning to Read Story and begin to share your experiences and feelings regarding reading. This assignment should be completed and turned in tomorrow Friday, August 18.
