Reading for Meaning

We have really been working a lot in science while reading articles, to read for meaning.  We do this by making connections while we read and creating our own wondering and questions with our partners.  We do a lot of partner reading and students take turns reading a section of the passage and then they pause after each section to discuss and connect, make visuals of what we've read, and identify key vocabulary in the text.  We used coloring pencils on this task- it's amazing how using something different (other than just a plain old pencil) helps students be more excited about the work we do!
