In our reading program we’ve been learning about the weather and seasons. As we work towards becoming independent readers we’ve begun to read decodable books that focus on the skills we’ve been learning during our phonics time.
Our book this week focused on different types of weather found in spring called “What Is It?”. Our students first spent time practicing the book during the “read to others” portion of the day, and then got the option to practice independently reading the story.
We then discussed the story and the main character, Lin. Students discussed what type of weather Lin liked, and what weather Lin didn’t like. They used their inferencing skills to use the pictures to help them come to their conclusions. Then students illustrated their findings showing which weather Lin liked and did not like.
