Boosting Thinking during a Read Aloud
Today we did a read aloud about "The Albertosaurus Mystery". The story was located in our third grade Journey Series. I added my own touch by drawing a chart on the board and labeling it Predict/Questions/Reflect. Each table was given sticky notes to use during the read aloud. They had such inquisitive questions and they put a lot of thought concerning their reflections. Students were eager to share and that's what makes me so HAPPY!
After the read aloud we did a quick Cause and Effect Activity. Each lesson that I develop always has higher order thinking incorporated, collaborative sharing, and an objective based on our TEKS.
