Treasured Tip - What are you THINKING?!?

I try to teach my kids that Readers are Thinkers, 
and the thought process of a reader before, during and after they read!

We made Thought Bubbles!

We have 6 bubbles we work with:
Before Reading Strategies, During Reading Strategies, After Reading Strategies, 
Making Connections, Non-Fiction Elements, and Fiction Elements.

As we practice these strategies I ask for a student volunteer 
(you wouldn't believe their excitement to participate)
to come up and be my "thinker".

We dramatize the whole thing and I applaud the volunteer for being so "thoughtful"!

This activity helps the students and walk them through the thinking about reading process!

Works fab. for whole & small groups!
