This week I introduced the CAFE strategy "Use Prior Knowledge to Connect with Text". Before reading the story Peanut Butter and Jelly we used our prior knowledge of our own experiences with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. We talked about how we already know a lot about the topic in the story we were about to read. After reading the story we discussed what parts of the story we knew ahead of time and how there were a few parts that we did not know before reading.
