Year 5 boys in the Middle School Library have been focusing on elements of what good readers do. A crucial part of this is the ability to “make connections” – and these can be either “text to self”, “text to text” or “text to world”.
Boys were tasked with identifying at least one type of connection from a chapter and these ideas were then linked together to form a paper chain. It is amazing to see the number of connections that can be identified within one book chapter.
