I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving! It is always so nice to have a little extra time to spend with family and friends. I also love getting the time to recharge and have a little extra time to create new things for my kiddos to use when we get back to school on Monday!

Ask and answer such questions as who, what, where, when, and how to demonstrate key details in a text.
Responding to reading is an important part of when assessing comprehension. I have found it helpful to be able to give students graphic organizers to assist them in processing the information that just read. After "reading to self"in a center students will typically have a few minute to be able to respond to their reading. This helps hold students accountable for one of the book that they just read.
Please check out this freebie that helps students organize their ideas and then retell a story that they just read.
