Connecting to Characters

In our read-aloud,"No Talking", a main character was inspired by Gandhi which led him to try being silent. Ms Montilla thought about being Gandhi for character day but after her son said that she looked like a Roman when she donned a white blanket and borrowed her husband's glasses, she decided to share about Gandhi through literature instead. Using our multiple copies on Gandhi's life story, we broke into small groups where each one took a turn reading aloud to the small group of four. The next step was to engage in a silent activity of drawing a doodle of what we heard and understood from the text. The last step was a rotation of students explaining and moving to new groups to share about Gandhi.
