When I first started teaching over a decade ago, one of the buzz words around at the time was Bloom's Taxonomy. I can't say I have heard it much lately but for this terms Daily 5 / Sustained Reading slot, my team decided to revisit it. We incorporated it into the Read to Self / Read to Buddy component of the reading block. First though, I'll recap on how last term went.
Our focus was as follows:
We monitored the Read to self (5min) as follows:
After listening to our buddies read, we discussed what it means to read fluently, and set this as the purpose for our Read to Buddy time:
Next, the Read to Buddy time was split 3/2 minutes. Read to your buddy for 3min and discuss for 2minutes (up to 3 questions from the Bloom's Fans).
As with last term, we will again reflect on the patterns that emerge after a fortnight of reading.
