Reading Strategy – Connecting
According to Adrienne Gear, a proficient reader doesn’t just decode the words on the page, but they engage and interact with the text by:
- making connections;
- asking questions;
- making inferences;
- determining importance;
- analyzing and synthesizing;
- monitoring their comprehension;
Each week of our distance learning (and when we get back to school), we will be focusing on a new reading strategy. During DEAR time, you have an activity to complete once you’ve finished your minimum of 20 minutes of reading.
This week we are focusing on CONNECTING.
When we connect with a story, we’re able to make sense of what we’re reading because it brings up memories for us. We may think about people, places and feelings that we associate with those memories.
