Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Post-it Notes = Speed Bumps for Readers - Section 2: Mini-lesson


Students really liked this metaphor and easily related to it.  I will be looking to see if they are "falling in love with Post-iting, yet.  Some students do not like to write post-its.  I am still investigating what the trouble is.  It is different for some of the kids.  I have two readers who do not like to post-it note because they just like to read.  I am going to work with them to tell them to read the chapter and then stop and think about what was important in the chapter that deserves their effort of writing their thoughts about it.  Other kids don't like to write post-its because the writing is difficult for them. Extremely difficult. This is a completely different problem.

I am thinking of two boys who do not like to write post-its.  I will have to meet with them early in the week and see what they have written and have them add on one more thing.
