Making Connections to Text

Hello! My students and I are working on Making Connections to Text right now. So, I made 4 different graphic organizers to use with them. They include sentence stems, and/or icons to help students make connections from T-T (text-to-text), T-S (text-to-self), and T-W (text-to-world). Click on the image below to get your copy. I hope they are useful!

Have the students write down a text connections that they make during their independent reading time on a slip of construction paper, share, and then categorize them into the three text connections. Once categorized, connect them to create paper chains:) Reading Lessons, Reading Skills, Teaching Reading, Reading Time, Guided Reading, Reading Strategies, Teaching Ideas, Reading Groups, Writing Lessons

Have the students write down a text connections that they make during their independent reading time on a slip of construction paper, share, and then categorize them into the three text connections. Once categorized, connect them to create paper chains:) I love the visual "connection" picture that it makes in the kids heads…

Reading Strategies: Connecting & Visualizing

What a lovely week! Maybe, just *MAYBE* we're starting to get into a routine! We've been working hard on our reading strategies these first few weeks of school - the things that good readers do with their brains while they're reading. I've decided to *spruce up* this unit and here's a look at some of our new activities: After learning how to make connections (text to self, text to world, and text to text) we've been making connections with our read-alouds each day. Some days, we'll write our…

Anchor Chart Link-Up

So, I bet you came over here expecting to see a long list of buttons and thank you notes, but... NOPE! I am D-O-N-E ... Done with that assignment. (That doesn't make me less grateful, it just makes me glad that I completed SOMETHING!)
