Scaffolding includes wait time to give students time to figure out and share their answer.

I like the idea of giving a child the training wheels needed to be a successful writer (sentence starters, etc.)

All 6 of these scaffolds are evident throughout Ross! For example, scaffolding is evident in our guided reading curriculum, just like in the article we provide key vocabulary, discuss and build schema before we send them off with a book. The Show and Tell method is used in math, when the teacher and students model activities they will eventually do independently ('fish bowl'). Turn and talk, wait time and visual aides some other examples of frequently used scaffolds in our classrooms.

When a student has a question about something, rather than just giving them the answer I probe to get them to think or help them realize connections that could be made from past experiences.

I don't think I ask enough open ended questions. I honestly can say I have never taken the pencil from a child... I agree with Henkels, I feel supported in this with our curriculum :)

Activate prior knowledge and connect new learning with previous learning. Encourage students to make connections to real world experiences, give examples. In Science, I provide sentence starters for reflections in Science Notebooks. Give as many visuals as possible and front load vocabulary with pictures. Collaborative group work. Offer choice in the way a student wants to show their thinking/learning.

Activate prior knowledge, background knowledge and connect with what they have learned over the years here at Ross, use sentence stems to help writers, reflect on their learning, visuals and SIOP strategies
