Reflective Entry

Yesterday we learned about writing Reflective Entries in Reader’s Workshop. Students were presented with strategies they can use when reading a text for accuracy and comprehension. Feel free to review this chart at home to reinforce current learning at school.

Use the Picture
Chunk parts you know together
Use beginning and ending sounds
Use known words to work out other words
