2 Prior Knowledge What prior knowledge about reading strategies do students need to have before entering this unit of study? Define the Strategy What is schema and how do readers use it? Monitoring for meaning Retelling SCHEMA: Schema is a reader s background knowledge that is used to understand the text. Readers use their background knowledge of topic, genre, author and their own personal experiences to understand the characters, plot and main ideas in the text.

When a reader does this it is often referred to as making a connection or using schema. Concepts to Teach What are the important concepts that you will teach within this unit of study? 1.

Independent Reading Books Name the strategy. Explain. I have noticed that A strategy good readers use is Today we are going to learn about Schema. Schema is all that you know. Schema is all the things you have ever done, all the places you have ever been and all the people you have ever met. You keep all this information in your mind and that is called your schema. Each day we learn more and more and we continue to build our schema. Let me show you what I mean. Let s pretend that our class is going to go on a field trip to my house. Has anyone in this class ever been to my house? (no) I am going to prove to you that even though you have not been to my house your schema will help you to have a lot of ideas of what you might see. I want each of you to think about what you might see in my kitchen. I know you have never seen it, but your schema for a kitchen will help you know what might be in my kitchen. Let s do it with a different topic. Let s pretend that we are going to go visit the Lilja Elementary School in Natick. Raise your hand if you have ever been there. Even if you haven t been to that school, I bet you can think of lots of items that you might see.. You knew what you would see in my kitchen and in a different school.

Text: Classroom Discussion Choose a text that supports the strategy. Name the strategy. Explain. I have noticed that A strategy good readers use is Introduce the Text. Level: Elementary Yesterday we learned what schema is and how readers use it. Today we are going to learn how readers use their schema to make connections. We make a connection when we hear or read about something and think to ourselves: I already know something about that or this reminds me of.. A connection can be something we have in common with another person. Today we are going to learn about connections by talking about what is the same about our families. Which children in this class have an older brother or sister? (thumbs up) These children have a connection that the rest of us don t have because they all know what it is like to have an older sibling. Which children have a younger brother or sister? - These children have a connection because they know what it is like to have a younger sibling. Which children are the single children in their family? These children have a connection because they know what it is like to be the single child in a family.

(Mia answers2 ) I two also. This is a connection. Now I can ask Mia what is fun about having older siblings. After she answers, she will ask me questions about my siblings. We have a connection about having older siblings. Turn to your partner and talk about your siblings or being a single child. Partner students with common family types. Once you have found what you have in common begin having a conversation about the topic. How did your connection help you when you were speaking to each other? How would the conversation have been different if you didn t have something in common? Create an Anchor Chart: Ways Connections Help Us. Schema - K Page 13

Text: Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100 th Day of Kindergarten, Joseph Slate Level: Elementary Name the strategy. Explain. I have noticed that A strategy good readers use is Introduce the Text. Yesterday we discussed how we make connections in our lives all of the time. Making connections is when you think I already know something about that or that reminds me of something. Readers make these same types of connections with books. Readers connect to the characters and the ideas in a book/story. Making connections helps a reader understand a story. Today we are going to learn more about how to make connections with books/stories. Demonstrate the strategy. Introduce the Text. Create Anchor Chart: (picture or words) Say: Think aloud. Show: Model. Explain: How this will help them as a reader. Ways to Talk about Connections: This part reminds me of I remember when. I have a connection with this part of the text. I am going to read the story aloud and I will stop reading to share some of my connections with you. When I m holding the book up like this, I ll be reading. When the book is down on my lap like this, I ll be thinking aloud. Read aloud pages 1-2. Stop and model. I remember when our class celebrated 100 th Day. Our class also brought in collections of 100.

Provide guided Invite the students to practice the strategy with teacher guidance. Provide independent Remind students before they go off to read. When you go to I.R. try Read the next few pages aloud. Turn to your neighbor and share any connections that you might have.

Text: The Kissing Hand, Audrey Penn Choose a text that supports the strategy. Level: Elementary Name the strategy. Explain. I have noticed that A strategy good readers use is Introduce the Text. Yesterday, we talked about how readers use their schema to make connections. We learned that readers sometimes say, This reminds me of when they want to share one of their connections.

The cover of the book says, Shopping and the illustration shows a woman and a boy in a supermarket. I am going to think about what I know about this topic. This book is probably about a mom and a son who are shopping for food in a grocery store. I know that: People make lists of what they want to buy There are aisles to help you know where things are People use a cart People buy all kinds of things You have to pay for the food This book is definitely going to remind me of my family because I go shopping all the time and I know what it is like to go shopping.
