Pearl of Wisdom
“Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs”
Make A Difference…One Sentence At A Time!
Consider these examples from the story…
“How was your day at school, Bonita?” This question repeated itself everyday but it gave Bonita a sense of comfort just to hear it.
Mama’s voice was like a song bird singing in a garden.
In this moment the garden was the family kitchen and mama was nestled in the kitchen of her garden.
*Review the techniques I mentioned above and discuss the sentences together. Engaging together during this reading moment will bring the story to life for you. Happy reading and stay tuned for another Mama Said…tip!
One Sentence At A Time!
Step 1 – Be present (Meeting your child’s physical need)
Step 2 – Take turns reading to your child “one sentence at a time.” Students, take turn reading to your parent “one sentence at a time.”
Step 3 – Discuss what you have just read asking each other questions about the character, setting, or mood.
