Schema: our school library, our classroom, our class pets
Text-to-Self Connections: going to the school library
Sitting in a special corner or area of the library
Listening to stories in the library
Wanting to check out the book the librarian is reading to the class
Seeing magazines, puppets, newspapers in the library
Noticing that we have similar books, chapter, hardcover, paperback
Noticing the different areas of the library: nonfiction, biography
Great time to share the databases where students can hear a story out loud such as Teachingbooks. net
Using shelf markers and putting books back where they go
Using computers to access the catalog
Getting papers signed by a parent/guardian
Enjoying the books you check out over the weekend
Text-to-Text Connections: I.Q. It’s Time, The Three Little Pigs
Mental Image: Imagine that you see I.Q. jumping on the mouse and dancing on the keyboard
Inference: We can infer from the illustrations that I.Q. does not have to stay in a cage in the classroom.
We infer that the story I.Q. wore the puppet for went with The Three Little Pigs. The librarian is also holding the book.
Synthesis: The big idea of the book is how to use the library. I am synthesizing that there are lots of things to do and learn about in the library.
