The Reading Corner
This was an interesting read because it gave ideas of how to make a close reading activity hands on for students. It was a short article with 5 activities for close reading. I like that this lesson started with a big book and then created charts, story boards to add to the classroom bulletin board and even story necklaces. This article discussed extending the story. I did this with my class to see what they thought would happen if the book had not ended when it did.My students came up with great questions that they wanted to know about what happened after the book ended. I like the idea and used it in my class and it was a great way to end the the lesson.
