Checking for understanding is a foundational reading strategy that many struggling readers lack. This particular product is a booklet where students summarize as well as illustrate what they are reading. I originally created this template for my ESE and AD(H)D students who either struggled with comprehension or simply with short attention spans. The idea of creating their own mini versions of the books they were reading (with illustrations included) motivated them to read to an extent that exceeded my expectations. What's more, their test grades improved drastically within one month of utilizing this booklet!
Furthermore, all you need to create this booklet is scissors (tape is optional) and VUOLA! You have a booklet! You can even have students glue the mini book in their interactive notebooks. Therefore, I hope you enjoy this product, and I hope that it helps other kids learn to love and understand what they are reading as it has helped the students in my class.
