Today we finished up to chapter 7 of The Little Prince. I modeled two reading strategies during our reading today.

What is happening in the story? How can I describe the main character? Does this story make sense? If we have trouble with understanding these questions we need to use a Fix Up strategy to fix our understanding of the book. One such strategy is Back-up and Re-read. After the read aloud, students brainstormed words to describe the Prince. Together, we made art out of these words:
