My search led me to:
We downloaded the app and book...and off we went!
While listening to the book, I kept tapping the icon replay the previous 30 seconds, and of course, this led the teacher in me to think about how I could use this to teach the IMPORTANCE of RE-READING.
The more I listened, the more I realized how many new details I was picking up as I replayed each section and the nerd in me wanted to take notes! How fun would it be to draw what I learning so I could remember it?!
SO....the strategy of PIC-TORY was born!
Here are my thoughts.
- Each student will set up a page in their notebook for our "game." ;)
- I will play a bookmarked section of the story once for my students to draw and label what they hear on their first "read."
- I will then replay the section a few more times asking my students to add details to their picture each time they notice something new in the text.
- At the end, we will see just how many details they picked up! :)
The end result should be a personal anchor chart that shows the comprehension of an historical text! Lots of standards, strategies, and skills all tied together in a fun way.
Hope you can use this strategy!
