This week we have been working hard on making connections to a text. A good connection to the another text, to our self, or to the world around us is not always that easy. Remember, a good connection is one that helps us better understand the text we are reading!
Today, I would like you to use your idea sheet from yesterday to explain some of the connections you made and how they helped you better understand the text. For example, when we read Oliver Button is a Sissy, we saw that liking pizza was not a useful connection, however, remembering being bullied is a great connection because it helps us understand the characters feelings.
So let me hear those Text to Self, Text to Text, and Text to World connections to Ruby’s Wish and how they help you better understand the main idea!
