Reading Comprehension: We're Sticking to It!

My students need Post-It notes to use as they are reading their core texts for their reading class.

My Students

We are a literacy-rich school. These are fancy teacher words for something that is very easy to understand, but also very special. My students read, and they love to do it. In my reading class, we learn how to be good readers as well as how to appreciate what we are reading.

My school serves students in grades 5-8.

We are a college preparatory charter school. It is our mission to prepare every one of our students to enter into and graduate from college. We accomplish through a culture of literacy, focus on the basics, and more time in core classes. I teach the eighth-grade class, which includes about 50 students. I've taught some of these kiddos for three years in a row: as sixth-graders, seventh-graders, and now eighth-graders!

My Project

Our school utilizes core texts in our reading classes. This means we all read one book together at the same time so we can all share the experience and learning as a classroom community. Sometimes, we can afford to buy a paperback copy of the core texts for each child. Other times, we buy hardcover copies that must be passed down to the next grade level. However, we need to take notes and make symbols as we are reading! This is how we communicate with our books. This means we need sticky notes to put in our books. We will write our brilliant thoughts on them as we are reading.

Even though our students can't actually write on the pages of their core text, the gift of these sticky notes will allow us to continue practicing our active reading writing.

We will be able to write notes as we are reading and keep the discussion and the passion for reading going.
