  2. There are three great book studies on this page that give handouts of thick and thin questions for read alouds. They would be great to use before, during, and after reading the stories. The last one, Chicken Sunday, has questions that the kids can write out answers to.

    The site that I found today was for a 4 week unit on Questioning. It was through Jefferson City Public Schools. I liked this site because it used Realistic Fiction and Non-Fiction and provided me with ideas for a whole unit. It als had a book list that could be used with the unit.

  10. I found a poster of the 7 thinking strategies which will be a good visual tool for my students.

  11. Here is a website for middle school that offers a couple ideas to engage students to think about what they think they know and to think about what they would like to learn. By allowing students to brainstorm, there is less stress of being “wrong” creating a safe environment for students to share ideas.
