Second time around was... so fun! We moved through the process of the Close Read for Day 2 and I modeled my annotations, with highlighting, drawing and arrows pointing out vocabulary and phrases. I am amazed at how much they enjoyed doing this! What a fun exposure to text, and the language that was happening was great! I loved how they remembered words and phrases from the text and wanted me to show them where it was so they could "highlight" it with their yellow crayon!
They were so proud! Here are a couple of pics of student annotations!
