Bear on My Chair

 

Ms.  Sachleben read aloud the story, There’s a Bear on My Chair by Ross Collins. As she read, she

  • Modeled her thinking while reading.
  • Stopped to ask question such as, “Why is he doing that?” and “What would I do instead?” and “Why won’t the bear move?”
  • Modeled making connections: “This reminds me of…”
  • And asked comprehension questions about what happened at the conclusion of the story. 

 

The students and Ms.  Sachleben worked together to come up with a list of animals and put them on the board. The first graders wrote the rhyming words on sticky notes and put them next to each animal that was written on the board.
