    When reading a 'read aloud' or when doing guided reading, stop and let students know what is going on in your mind as you, or they, read. Invite them to tell what they are thinking as you, or they, are reading. Comments like: 'I wonder why Tommy said that?' 'I've felt like Mary before, have you?' 'I think what Tom did is going to cause a problem.' will help students learn to think, which will in turn help them remember what was read. This will help them get ideas from the reading instead of just reading words. When they hear you 'think out loud', they will begin to stop and think as they read to themselves.
