Finally, I got around to creating reading comprehension graphic organisers that are suitable for the IB PYP, the CCSS ELA and promote inquiry within reading for ANY non fiction and fictional text. More thinking strategies will be added as I progress. Reinforce the reading comprehension skills and strategies with the children as they learn how to identify their learning within the big ideas of the key concepts and the Learner Profile. Use with ANY text!
These graphic organisers are easy to integrate into your trans disciplinary teaching, simply print and go, mix and match or focus on the skills that you are currently working on. Over 60 pages!
They re designed with 3rd-5th grade in mind and they tie in perfectly with the PYP phases 3 and 4 as well as the Common Core State Standards. So easy to differentiate!
You will find UK as well as USA spelling and the skills covered include:
Using background knowledge
Main Idea and details
Cause and Effect
Compare and Contrast
Parts of a story
You can find many more hands on reading comprehension activities within my store and in my blog. You may also be interested in my Complete Units of Inquiry covering science, math, literacy and social studies. For all IB PYP themes.
