This year we have been learning all sorts of reading strategies both for how to decode words so we can read them and strategies on how to comprehend or understand what we read. Some of our comprehension strategies are: Making a connection to your own life, making an connection to another piece of writing, retelling a story in our own words, visualizing something in the story and finally, WONDERING!! Over the last few weeks we have been working on Wondering. This week Miss Jill read a nonfiction story called "The Bumblebee Queen" about the life of a North American Queen Bee, what an interesting book. We did a lot of wondering with our partners and then went back out our journals to write our "wonders" down! The kids were really thinking and had lots of things that they were curious about!
