Teaching with Intention Book Study Chapter 5

I am linking up for chapter 5 of this awesome book!!! The host for our book study for chapter 5 is From Kindergarten with Love.

This chapter was amazing! Eyeopening to say the least! We, the readers got to se Debbie Miller in action! This chapter is called Swimming With the Sharks. We got to experience a nonfiction unit about sharks being taught by Debbie Miller! 

This quote says it all. This chapter discusses how we need to dig deep into the lessons that we are going to be teaching. Here are some questions you should ask yourself while you are planning your lessons:

Schema charts are one of the best graphic organizers to use! They allow us to see what they know, what they want to know, what they learned and their misconceptions. The schema charts are used to tailor your instruction to make it meaningful to those children at that time!!

I use schema charts and they make a big difference in the teaching, implementing and outcomes of my lessons! My kids love to give me their thoughts on sticky notes and add them to the chart! 

I can not wait for Chapter 6! This book certainly does not disappoint the reader. If you do no have this awesome book, click below to go to amazon.
