Literacy Cafe Menu

Below is our Literacy Cafe Menu. The Cafe Menu, like a menu in a restaurant, lists a number of different items that we can choose from. In this case they are strategies to help us read. Cafe stands for Comprehenion Accuracy Fluency and Expanded vocabulary. As the students learn reading strategies during reader's workshop, the strategies are posted on the board under the appropriate title. Throughout the year students will be able to refer to these strategies during their own reading time. This week students have been introduced to the first three reading strategies: check for understanding, cross-checking (does it look right, sound right and make sense) and tuning into interesting words.
