I'll be introducing Reading Journals to my students during the next couple of weeks. I like your idea of modeling your thinking for the students; it is so important for them to not just hear what they should do, but to actually see it.
Thanks, Barb. I've been working on lots of visuals over the long weekend- multiplication patterns, long arrays, literature circles and more. My students are visual/kinesthetic learners much more than auditory learners. They have to see diagrams, pictures, etc. in order to do their best, and then they REALLY do well. They are an extremely bright group, and I know they will certainly benefit from this visual I showed everyone. - Victoria
