Get out your RAWR journal (Reading and Writing Response) and draw a text to self connection you have to what we just read!
A fun way to get kids to respond to what they read or wrote.
I use this almost daily for responses to what we are reading... quick sketch of predictions, connections, something that starts with the letter B, really anything!
Print it off, glue it to the front of a spiral notebook and viola!
Let me know how it works for you!
Thanks and have a great year with your kiddos!
