Drawing Conclusions and Night Letters
Our Reading Street story last week was Night Letters. The kids really got into this story! For one of their stations, they thought about an object such as a plant or animal that they might find in their back yard. Then they wrote a letter to themselves from that objects point of view- just like the little girl in the story. I did model by writing my own night letter from the point of view of garden snake. After stations, they came up and shared their night letters with the class. I tied in our skill of the week which was drawing conclusions by having the students guess who each night letter was from. The students had to explain their thinking by using details from the text and their prior knowledge. My kiddos really enjoyed this activity and it was great practice!
