    A Quotation a Day
    By Broadening our minds

    I discovered this site before school started. http://www.education-world.com/a_lesson/lesson132.shtml

    Now as my bellwork each morning I have a quotation written on the board. My fourth graders write the quotation in their journal and tell me what they think it means. We take a couple of volunteers to tell the class what they thought the quote meant -- if I think they totally missed the boat I share mine....for example, the first quote mentions a 10-speed bicycle. A lot of my kids don't own a 10-speed and didn't understand this concept.

    I think as time goes on this will really help my students to use critical thinking when reading!
