Determining Importance:

Students will start thinking and talking about what’s important to them, and about how to determine what matters most. These discussions help prepare students so they are better able to detect and discuss what’s essential in text while reading. Digger the Dog is this week’s comprehension character. Digger helps students focus on important information that helps them understand what they are reading.


*Ask your student about the purse activity.

Questioning
This week we have been learning about questioning. Students are being introduced to Wyatt the Wondering Wolf this week to help them ask meaningful questions before, during and after reading. This strategy builds upon students’ natural impulse for curiosity. They are learning that asking questions increases
understanding.
*Ask your student about using a questioning rock with his/her teacher! Ask him/her to tell you about asking questions like Wyatt.
