Reflection: Student Led Inquiry The 'Whys' and 'Whens' of Questioning with Literature - Section 5: Students Take a Turn


As we read over the book after the questioning, one of my ELL students had a question about the 'sponge'.  This became a vocabulary lesson. He made a connection between the sponge in the picture and SpongeBob, which helped him understand better. Even though SpongeBob was not related to this book, anytime that a student can bring in background knowledge to add meaning to a story, it is reason to celebrate!
