This week we’re practicing main ideas and details. After watching a read aloud video, we each wrote down some details we heard. Then we got into groups, shared our details, and had to come to a consensus on what we thought the book’s main idea was.
We also practiced writing and identifying questions and statements. To do this, we did silent interviews. We first wrote questions for our partner, then traded papers and wrote a statement to answer. After we got our papers back, we got to use the play microphones to practice our speaking and listening skills by doing a live interview. We even had some follow-up questions!
