As we are currently reading and working on a class novel in school, I thought you might like to see the kind of work we get up to! We use Task Maps to investigate different aspects of our reading. Today we were working on Read and Understand, where we looked for the evidence in the book to tell us when Thanksgiving is celebrated and why. We then used this information to find out the date of Thanksgiving this year. In pairs, we chose one of the Connect 4 activities, which links our reading to what we know about ourselves and our world. We were finding out about various books mentioned within the novel, and learning about who Charlie Chaplin was.
