WALT: ask questions as we read to make sure we understand what 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: ask questions about the story before i start to read
- Most challenging was: predicting and thinking about what the story is going to be before i read
- Next step is to: look at the contents to help give me some ideas
Sharing our Stories
