WALT: ask questions as we read to make sure we understand what we read.
Remember we can question before we read…
What is this going to be about? What do I already know that will help me understand? what do I want to find out?
We can question as we read…
what does that mean? what is going to happen next? what else do I want to know?
We can question after we read…
does that make sense? what have I learned? have I answered my earlier questions? what else do I want to know?
- I learned to: get better at reading by asking questions before I start to read.
- Most challenging was: when I have to find the information to answer my questions.
- Next step is to: my next step is to read more so I get better at reading.
Memphis, you have though hard about your reading and what is going to help you. I agree that reading more, reading at home and reading all of the text we are reading in a group will help you. You know what you need to do and I am looking forward to next term as you develop as a reader!
You can use prediction and questioning before you read to help you to 'tune in' to your text. This helps to make sure you understand why you are redding.
