Text to self connections: learning to read
Characterization: use a graphic organizer to write all of the things we read about Mr. George Baker such as his baggy pants, his suspenders, his sweater, his Hershey’s kisses in his pocket, his lunch, his desire to learn to read, his drum playing, a hundred years old
Synthesis: I am synthesizing that Mr. George Baker wanted to learn to read even though he was really old. When I learn to read, I want to read…….ask your students to fill in the blank.
List all of the things we couldn’t do if we couldn’t read. Read a map, drive, order from a menu, enjoy library books, read close captioning on TV
