Reflection

Thinking about what I already know helps me because: I already know it and it gets me thinking before I start reading.

It was really hard when: the teacher doesn't help us when where stuck because I need to think for myself so I learn.

Something that really helped me was: predicting whats going to happen next in my story. It helps me make sure my reading makes sense.

Something new I learned was: new words, about animals because we read nonfiction books.

Kerri Thinks
We do a lot of chatting before we start reading. That helps us to 'engage our prior knowledge' and think about what we already know so we are ready for reading and learning. Remember to listen to the ideas and thinking of others in the group, we can all learn from each other. I know that you are a great reader so your next learning step is to use what you know and all the different strategies you have to work out tricky words rather than relying on others.
