I introduced a new CAFE strategy today called "Tune in to interesting words." We read the story The Windy Day. After reading a page I would ask the class if they heard any interesting words. We made a list of these words on a chart. We are going to continue to add to this list every time we read a story or when the student's are reading their own stories and come across interesting words. We discussed what makes a word interesting and how we can also add these new words to our writings!
