Schema is all about making personal connections to what we're reading. Our schema is our prior knowledge. As we demonstrated in class, we have much more prior knowledge for Lake Mohawk than for Scrabo Tower!

In a collaborative listening activity, groups were given limited supplies and directed to depict a scene from the story. Students only listened to the read aloud, they were not given any visuals and were not permitted to use anything other than what they were given: two crayons and two pieces of construction paper. No tape or scissors were allowed. The recreations were great and are hanging in our hallway!

The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown. Students created lists about what makes them important and from there, drafted bio poems about who they are, where they are from, and what they love and aspire to be. We can't wait for you to read them on Back to School Night!
