Learning to Read Like a Teacher: Nonfiction

Published by at 10:34 AM under Reading Workshop,Teacher Talk

It’s not easy to read like a teacher does. Primary teachers, in particular have perfected this seemingly innate skill.  Today, we learned how to read a part of a nonfiction text by reading OFF OF the text, not reading all the words on the page.

We had to make decisions as to what was important to share with others, what were some questions we had that we wanted to share, connections, and so on.

We also learned the importance of using a loud, clear, teacher voice, expressive face and hand movements and how to hold the book so others held their interest in what we were saying.

Teachers make it look so easy!  In the picture below, Max is doing a great job of trying out the skills we learned today.
