Questioning the Text
This week we are still discussing all of the ways to activate our brains while reading. One great way is to ASK QUESTIONS AND WONDER about the the text. Your assignment for the weekly blog is this:
1. Read independently, as usual.
2. Keep your brain activated by asking questions and wondering about the text and jot those down -STOP & JOTS (3-5 is a good amount for a 20-30 minute reading).
3. Collect at least 2 nights of stop-and-jots that focus on questioning the text.
4. Choose at least 5 of your best questions (perhaps you even discovered the answer) to post in your own blog.
**Blogging Tips: Type in word ...just in case. *Spellcheck * Reread to make sure it sounds your best. *Post on time and make sure it's been approved and posted (must check off "Publish"). *Comment on a classmate's post.*
