PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Preparing your students for a state test? Noticing that you have a group of students struggling with summarizing? Or figuring out the meaning of new, tricky words? Try using these Close Reading: Non-Fiction Reading Skill Cards with given strategies.

I use strategy groups with my students based on both formative and summative assessments to see what skills my students need a little extra guidance in. When I meet with them in our group, we practice different strategies. Then, instead of sending them off without them remembering what we discussed, I give them the strategy card with our focus of the day!
NOTE:
These cards are best used with texts that students may "mark up." Most of the strategies include questions to ask themselves and annotating strategies. However, this can easily be adapted to their books by having them do their jottings on a post-it and place it in their book or in their reading notebooks and provide a page number. The blank cards can be used to create your own strategies to fit your needs!

Simple print the cards, single-hole punch them, and give them to students to practice by attaching them to a metal ring. Throughout the year, they'll collect strategies for all sorts of reading skills. I print each skill on a different color paper to easily identify the skills each student has met with me on. Also, I've included blank cards for you to add your own strategies, add examples of the skill, draw pictures...whatever you may need on the spot when working with students. Laminate them for extra durability!
