Reflection: Routines and Procedures Metacognition: Reflecting on the little voice inside their heads - Section 4: Closing


Reflection: Although our week-long metacognition unit has come to an end, it is definitely not the last that students will hear of this strategy.  Understanding the act of thinking is a critical piece to success as a reader. We will use this word often throughout the year. I will continue to think out loud and model metacognition during Read Aloud and will talk in depth with students about it during Book Clubs. I will also place a tag that says “using metacognition” on our Reading Café under the comprehension section so that students are constantly reminded to be aware of this strategy.
