I created this resource to help my students make annotations while reading. The resource includes visuals and prompts for each type of annotation. The visuals help my ESL students understand the type of annotation and the prompts are used as a guide to help them explain the annotation that they chose. I also included a blank template, so students can create their own types of symbols and sentence frames.
I laminate this resource and provide each student with a copy. Depending on the text, students will either use sticky notes to make annotations or annotate in the actual piece of text.
