My name is Mrs. Clay, and I am your Tuesday/Thursday Panther Den teacher.
Today I would like to get to know you better as a student so that I can plan for our time together. Next time I see you, we will spend some time getting to know one another using a few different strategies.
First, take a few minutes to complete a learning styles inventory.
Next, take a few minutes to complete a reading survey.
Please hand in both of the surveys and then log into Learning Ally.
Let's watch two short clips about Dyslexia and Learning Ally.
First, we will make name plates. Pick a brightly colored piece of paper from the stack. Fold it horizontally (hot dog style).
Write your name in the middle.
Write your learning style above your name.
In the upper right hand corner write your dream career.
In the upper left hand corner write the name of your favorite class from this year, or in the past.
In the bottom left write one of your hobbies.
In the bottom right write the name of your favorite movie or book.
Now, let’s share the details on our name plates with our classmates.
Today we will read:
First, read the short story and circle with your pencil whatever you think is important.
Now, read the selection again. This time use a yellow highlighter to mark places in the text a robber would find important.
You will now read the selection a third time. Underline in another color any places in the story that a home buyer might think are important.
What did you notice about the three times you marked the text? What if you read your tests like a detective? How could this help you as a reader?
The first time was probably the most difficult because you didn't have a purpose.
