My first attempt at success criteria with students, didn't go too bad and it's definitely helping us understand what we need to include!
The next pics are the beginnings of our lapbooks, they are really coming along!
This last one has to do with our making connections reading strategy we are working on. Each time we make connections we put them on post its and ask ourselves "SO WHAT!" to make it clear that just making a connection isn't enough. The idea of SO WHAT was given to me from our school literacy coach Jackie Sweeney. Each connection we decide if the writer gave enough of a connection to take the idea further than the literal. The goal is to get my students to make a connection along with explaining how it helped them understand the text or what the bigger idea is. We are working on it but this is what our board looked like after Day 1, I'll post what it looks like now, it's a slower process than first thought!
Okay I'm officially done for tonight!
