Today we made brownies to show how synthesizing works when we read.  A good reader has lots of thoughts...they have to make connections, predict, use their schema, infer, ask questions and search for understanding.  If a reader only uses 1 thinking skill, they miss some of the yummy stuff a story can tell.  Making brownies  is the same way...if we only use an egg, or oil, they don't turn out so yummy.

This was a super way to introduce the idea of synthesizing (and make a yummy treat)!  We will continue to practice this in our reading for the next few weeks!
