This week my students and I are working on our first real reading skill. "Reading is Thinking." My students and I generate a list of things that they think about while they read.
After we have made a mini list together I give them this bookmark to show them other things they can think about while they read. You can grab it for free from TPT.
What do you do to launch your Reading Workshop and build stamina?
Don't forget that tomorrow is National Talk Like a Pirate Day. If you do anything with your kiddos to celebrate, I'd love to have you join my first linky party!
