Tuesday Tidbit

Thanks to Dr. Penny Soboleski for providing us with fantastic weekly reading tips!  

One reading strategy that is important for children of all ages to develop is the ability to CLARIFY what they have read. This strategy involves readers using the text to help them understand what they have read.

The strategy of clarifying should be used during and after reading.

A great way to work on this strategy at home is to role model clarifying while you are reading with your child!  

This is what it may look like in the form of CITING information:
This is a more basic skill and a great way to start building this strategy!

 If you just read Goldilocks you may ask your child-
"Who was the biggest bear?"

You and your child can reread the text to determine-
"Papa Bear was the biggest bear." 

Note with your child this information was found on page 2.  This allows your child to understand how to use the text to clarify and enhance what has been read.

Another Goldilocks example:

How was Papa Bear described?
"Papa Bear's paws were much bigger than Mama Bear's paws."
This information was found on page 5.

Try this working on this strategy with your child! 

ROAR words

ROAR with your children!!!  

Reading the words as you sing is a GREAT way to improve reading fluency!  Visit our Facebook page to see this song come to life!!



I like to practice being proactive
Habit 1 is making good choices
So I sit quietly, and raise my hand politely

Knowing where to begin is where it’s at.  You struggle less by starting with the end
I am proactive
So I practice Habit 2

(pre-chorus)
Put first things first that is the key
Already choosing victory
You think win-win, you give to get
That’s where Habit 4 is at
We understand each other’s lives
We listen hard and we don’t deprive
With Habit 5 I see it now

(chorus)
I got the 7 Habits, habits here at Jefferson
Cause I am a leader and you’re gonna hear me Roar
Louder, louder like a lion
Cause I am a leader and you’re gonna hear me Roar

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (repeat 4x)
You’re gonna hear me Roar

Now I’m working hard on Habit 6
Synergizing is the trick
I sharpen my saw, to conquer it all

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (repeat 4x)
You’re gonna hear me Roar
(repeat)

Roar-or, roar-or, roar-or, roar-or

I got the 7 Habits, habits here at Jefferson cause I am a leader and you’re gonna hear me Roar
Louder, louder like a lion cause I am a leader and you’re gonna hear me Roar.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (repeat 4x)
You’re gonna hear me Roar
(repeat)
