I modeled looking at the pictures and telling the story again by reading Have You Seen My Duckling. On each page I stopped and had students tell me what they noticed in the picture, what was happening, and how they could tell.
Then I introduced the third way to read a book- retell a story you already know. We read The Kissing Hand yesterday and we read it again today so I modeled retelling that story with my students. I had them help me retell it.
Then a student and I modeled how to sit together and read a familiar book by retelling it. Then I partnered students and gave them a familiar fairy tale to practice. I used The Three Little Pigs, The Three Little Bears, and The Gingerbread Man because I knew these were all books most of my students would be familiar with.
This is what I learned... about half of my students were able to retell a story they already knew, others tried but struggled with it, and two boys said they did not know how to read. So... we are going to continue to practice the three ways to read together as a group. I am going to reread some of the read alouds from my lessons over the next few days and have us practice retelling the story after we are familiar with it.
Here is our finished anchor chart.
Tomorrow we are going to revisit our anchor chart, practice the three ways to read, and learn about how to partner talk with each other.
