And then, lo and behold, I was working with a group of kids who were a bit unhappy about needing to work again on some comprehension skills with me. This is a group of kids that I'm now meeting with three times a week for an additional half an hour. They're just frustrated that they're not "getting it." And the truth is - they're SO close!
You can't see really well that the the students created a foldable with examples on the inside. And then, moving from there, we created a way to identify what facts and details questions might look like. So we drew hands and worked from there.
Sometimes it only takes a little "something" to make an idea click. I'm pretty happy that the kids are investing a new level of energy into mastering these concepts!
Have a great Tuesday!
