With close reads we are able to fit them in where it makes since and make TRUE connections. There is nothing like reading your box curriculum read aloud about winter in September..don’t laugh- it happens! 🙂 Anyway, we were able to schedule our field trip to the farm to coincide with our ponies close read and it made it so meaningful! As we were on our hayride the kids yelled out, “Look that horse has a blaze!” or “The two foals are playing!”

We also closed our ponies close read with a cumulative writing! Students wrote a fact about ponies! It’s so fun to see what minor details they will pick up on!
Ponies are wild.
Ponies live on islands.
