Gathering Responses {15 of 31 Slice of Life}

One of my favorite parts of our day is our chapter book read aloud.  Today we finished reading Roscoe Riley Breaks the Rules #1 Never Glue Your Friends to Their Chairs by Kathleen Applegate with energy and enjoyment.  I found several moments to model my own reading thinking.  We were laughing and having natural conversations in what we were reading.  They asked questions, they sited evidence from the text, they predicted, and they responded to events in the story they couldn't believe.  Our book talk has come a long way this year.

As I looked up and continued reading, I was reminded body language is also a way for reader's to respond.  I saw her eyes get bigger along with her grin.  I saw her wiggle in her seat a bit when we couldn't believe what was happening.  I was also reminded we can't plan or predict all responses we gather.  

Thank you Two Writing Teachers for fostering this writing community.
