Tune in to Interesting Words!
I introduced a new CAFÉ reading strategy last week, Tune Into Interesting Words. This strategy teaches students to “tune in” when listening or reading a story for any interesting words they might come across. We read the story Where the Wild Things Are and found 8 interesting words when reading the story! A few of the words we found were gnashed, wild, frightened, rumpus and mischief! When we are reading a story and they hear a word that they might find interesting, they are to put their hand up by their ear as a signal to me that they heard an interesting word. Before I continue reading to the next page, those students will share what interesting word they heard!
