Day Twenty-Two--Monday, 2/9/15
When You Come In
- Initial next to your name on my clipboard for attendance.
- Grab a copy of “Sibling Face-Off” and the connections worksheet from the sign-in table--please and thank you!
- Drop your phone in the phone hostage center. Put your phone BEHIND your name card, please.
- Grab your book and your orange sheet for free reading later.
- Take a look at your grade for the last week of reading. Here are the dates possible: 1/29, 1/30, ⅔, 2/4, 2/6.
- Possible points are out of 25.
- If you were absent, or if you didn’t read because you were doing make-up work, and you want to make up your points, grab a sheet from the drawer.
- If you want all your points, please fill out your sheet accurately. I can only give you the points based on the evidence you provide me with. Thanks!
- Okay, everyone pass that used sheet back to me, and I’m going to give you a new one to start today.
Strategy Practice: Making Connections Between THE TEXT and MYSELF--“Sibling Face-Off”
- Strategy #1: Read the questions first. Underline information as I read, when you find the answers.
- Strategy #2: Making connections--Grab a “My Personal Connections” handout.
- I’m going to modify how we do this. Instead of fillint out the left column with quotes from the text, I want you to HIGHLIGH T the sentence in the text you connect with, label it #1, then write your personal connection on the worksheet in the right column.
- I’m going to read this aloud, and we’re going to stop and make connections as we go.
- Please be ready to discuss your connections--no dead dogs today! :-)
- 10:48--With the partner I give you, please complete questions #1-11 in the back, then turn the packet in to the drawer.
- When you finish, put both papers in the drawer, then find a comfy spot, fill out your orange sheet, and read and relax! :-)
READ AND RELAX PROCEDURE, REPEATING
- Read until I stop you; do not quit early and start filling out your sheet, etc.

- Don’t I always?!
