Sketch to Stretch
I was working on my “Planet Unit” for the Multigrade 3/4 and 4/5 classes and wanted to try a new reading strategy that I read about called “Sketch to Stretch.” I read about it in the book, “READING STRATEGIES FOR SPANISH SPEAKERS by Susan Lenski. The strategy has students sketching ideas as they are read text orally by the teacher in order to comprehend the text more effectively.
In this assignment, while doing an interactive read-aloud with the whole class, the teacher projects the pages of the online copy of the book “The Sun and the Seasons” onto the front screen and reads the text aloud. The student then uses the illustrations shown and the oral text to sketch their response to a question.
