Sorting our Thinking in Reading.

We discovered we are doing four kinds of thinking in reading by sorting our pictures.

These people were thinking about the entire book once it was over., like when Mark said, "Gloria finally makes them listen...finally!"

These people decided something about the book or a part of the book or a character in the book, like "The kids seem to like Gloria the best."

These people made connections while they read, like "This book reminds me of another police officer book."

These people did very quick thinking, like people who said, "I like Gloria."

We decided we'd like to try to do more of thinking outside the orange hula hoop...and maybe we will need more hula hoops for different kinds of thinking. Stay tuned...we've been challenged!
