Now that we are 136 days into first grade, it's not enough just to read the words in our books! You really have to think while you read! We are exploring character feelings and how those feelings help us to better understand the text. We have been working on it during our group discussions, but now it is time for the next step. During our small groups and partner work time, learners are jotting down how a character feels and putting the post it in their book. Then they can share it with their partner. I'm so proud of the reading in our room.
