Our teacher read us the book: Because of Winn-Dixie. 

Reading using the strategy, Check For Understanding means: stopping when you read and asking yourself "Who is the story about?" and "What's happening?"

Secret to success:
Knowing you have to understand the who and what in the book.

We are reading the book "Because of Winn-Dixie" to practice checking for understanding. One thing that has happened is: A little girl found a dog and made up the name Winn-Dixie. She took it to her dad.

Who -  Winn-Dixie, Opal/India, her dad

Doing what - Winn-Dixie knocked things down in a store, Opal took the dog home and the dad said she can keep Winn-Dixie.

What book are you reading? Who is doing what in your story?

Dear 3SB,

I just read Chester's Masterpiece. It's about a cat named Chester. Chester wants to make his own story without help from the author Melanie Watt. Whenever Chester tries to write something, Melanie puts in sticky notes. At the end of the book, Melanie asks Chester where all her stuff is and Chester shows the stuff in his litterbox, looking like a mime!

Dear 3SB,

I am very proud of the work you did today. It is so exciting that you are able to share your learning and understanding with the world.

I love the book Because of Winn-Dixie. You will love the friends India Opal makes throughout the story.

Happy reading!
