**The students were very excited today to learn about different reading strategies. Many students find such concepts a little bit boring. However, I was happy to see all the look of excitement on everyone's faces when we learned about connections, visualizations, inferences, skimming, scanning, etc. We modelled how to use some of the strategies and the students had practice putting these strategies to work! You did great today everyone! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!**

**LEARNING INTENTIONS**: To use different reading strategies to deepen your understanding of the reading material.
