Stop and Jot, part 2

We've had some trainings on close reading and one of the things I took away was teaching my munchkins to "read with a pencil".

Granted, this wasn't earth-shattering information, but rather an affirmation that I'm doing the right things with my reading groups. It's always a relief to hear that what I'm doing aligns with best practice theories.

Here's our "stop and jot" poster with when students should stop to record their thinking.

As you can see, there's lots of times students should pause to record their thinking!  I'm glad they're getting used to annotating and showing their thinking.

(We did review how to use post-its when it's a book you shouldn't write in as well!  They do love their post-its.)
