One of the most difficult aspects in both reading is to help your students be able to use higher order thinking skills and inferencing to draw conclusions.
This is a great activity using paged 534-535 of the reading section of the DEAR DOC Binder.
The activity will be emailed to you whether you have the binder or not.
I start off the video by giving an overview allowed to use your body, in this case Mrs. Potato Head's body to teach the process of expository from beginning to end. ❤️
It also helps your students with voice by guessing the thoughts of the characters in 40 scenarios and writing them out on paper. The activity requires your students to literally put themselves inside the shoes of the characters.
Using the paper potato Head from page 508 your thoughts represent a white chip. If you are reading a student's essay, and he happens to share his thoughts, you would place one white chip inside the opening of Mrs. Potato head's back.
Only 1% of the students in Texas get two fours from the readers on expository each year, and a major reason that happens is that the papers are just full of information and facts, but no voice, the actual point and view and perspective of the students writing the essay.
Your personal thoughts inside your head are a reaction to an action or an effect to a cause.
