Reflection: Schema Theory - Section 3: Independent Work


I chose to include Thank You, Mr. Falker as the reading in this lesson because the book connects to the idea of learning to read and is both moving and relatable. I always hold up my copy of the book and as it is a picture book it is non-threatening to the students.  Even my poor readers feel confident with this book.

I have provided a link to both the online text I located to print and use for my classes and the youtube reading of the text. 

If the print copy and/or the online reading were not available, this book could also be read aloud by the teacher while students record connections on their own paper.
