Small Groups Respecting Flow of Conversation

In the small groups for guided reading in third grade, these students
are learning to communicate without raising their hands. 

The class discussed how at home most of them don't raise their hands at the dinner
table, but they still understand the structure and flow of conversation
in a small group setting. They are practicing and applying those skills
to the discussions about nonfiction texts and what they expected to
learn from the books.
