Readers Workshop: Unit 4 Lesson 7/8 Close reading and book based pretending.

Students will explore the idea that reading is a lot like pretending; avid readers act out a story in their minds each time they read. They’ll especially focus on picturing what’s happening on each page. They might even use gestures to physically act out some parts of their books. They’ll do this by thinking about how the characters feel and what’s really happening in each part of the story.
