Primary Reading Strategy

Today I met a friend and colleague for an afterschool chat and she shared a great reading strategy she saw in a class today.

Each student had a sticky note with their own name on it.

As the teacher read a picture book, a student could at any time, come up and put their sticky note name on a page if they had thought of a connection.

After the story the teacher went through the book and when a students name was called they would say: "This remind me of...."

What a simple, but fantastic strategy to encourage listening, connecting, and sharing.

I absolutely love it and can't wait to try it!
