PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you love sassy? My 55 page Comprehension Skill and Strategy Posters are sweet and sassy! Each include bright chevron print background, whimsical borders, and creative clipart to help students make connections with content.

The Comprehension Skills and Strategy Posters hung on my cabinets by clothespins. I only hang the poster once it's been introduced. In my class, I work with a skill and strategy for a week. With that being said, we cycle through and hit each multiple times in the year.

To ensure the kids are familiar with the posters, I have various students volunteer to remove and rehang the instructed strategy or skill from the cabinet each mini lesson. This mobile focus wall allows for the poster to be displayed during instruction at their level. Once the lesson is over, a volunteer will place the poster back on the focus wall.

Included are...
Summarize, Sequence of Events, Monitor and Clarify, Predict and Infer, Question, Evaluate, Story Structure, Fantasy and Reality, Predicting Outcomes, Compare and Contrast, Fact and Opinion, Categorize and Classify, Making Judgments, Topic and Main Idea, Problem Solving, Making Inferences, Drawing Conclusions, Cause and Effect, Noting Details, Homophones, Multi Meanings, Onomatopoeia, Compound Words, Antonyms, Verbs, Nouns, Text to Text Connections, Text to Self Connections, Text to World Connections, Visualizations, Author's Purpose, Main Ideas and Details, Synonyms, Analyze, Understanding Characters

Oops - I somehow skipped over Story Structure and Summarize. We just switched to HM Journeys and I am now looking over the skills and strategies that are new, like Analyze and Understanding Character. I plan to Analyze with details, so I can write the Word "Analyze" Under Noting Details. For Understanding Characters it is why they do something, I am going to focus on feelings and schema. I will look at the other series for Text and Graphic Features. Thank you for your help!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 10, 2013Primary Graffiti answered:
I can create the same card as Noting Details and change the word to Analyze so that it stays pretty! How about the characters from Wizard of Oz to represent Understanding Characters? Lion, Tin Man, etc.
n/a
On  July 9, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I recently started to put my focus wall together (School starts back up August 5th), and I was wondering if you could add the following (they are a skill or strategy in the HM Journeys series): Analyze, Summarize, Understanding Character, Text and Graphic Features and Story Structure. I know this is a lot, so I will pay for a new set :-) Thank you!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 10, 2013Primary Graffiti answered:
You will find Story Structure and Summarize in this pack already.

How do you teach Analyze? I created my posters to align with HM Reading. I'm trying to figure out if it's the same way we teach Noting Details.

Can you elaborate on how you teach Understanding Character?

As for Text and Graphic Features (title, heading, photos, maps, illustrations, charts, captions, diagram, and graph: Did I miss any from your series?), I know Amanda at One Extra Degree has a wonderful pack with this set already created. Unless you are looking for the Thisletgirl graphics to match the Reading Genre and Comprehension Skills and Strategy Poster I created.

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Arctic-Snow-Business-An-Avalanche-of-Nonfiction-Fun-192729

I'm leaving town in two days and will be gone for two 1/2 weeks. I worry about the time frame in which you would need the Text and Graphic Features set. I can add Analyze and Understanding Character to my current pack before I leave!
