Reflection: Student Ownership Catalog Cats/ Our Garden Day 1 - Section 2: First Reading


     Students were able to focus on writing their reactions during the first reading as evidenced by the quantity and quality of their Student Sticky Notes. When asked, students can elaborate on the reasons they wrote their particular reactions.  Furthermore, they can refer to the portion of text that sparked this reactions.  The sticky notes are great in helping students quickly locate the part of text they are referring to.  The sticky notes serve as book marks that references their notes.

     Students had difficulty at first creating responses because the concept was so abstract to them.  So, I model concrete examples to them for each type of stick note: +, ?, !
