This product contains Coding the Text for all readers and abilities. This product is designed to help you help your students to learn and become proficient at annotating or coding the text. In the age of Common Core, the demands on kids today to read longer and stronger and closer is more evident than any other time in the history of education! Beginning in the early grades, teachers can model and coach kids on how to track their thinking in order to be able to talk about books. This can be done in whole group with a read aloud, where you use post-it notes and the codes in this product to show kids when and where and how to stop and make sense of what they are reading. The idea is to then allow kids to try it out in their independent reading or book club books with a partner or small group. Then eventually the teacher will release the responsibility entirely to the students. Using the text coding worksheet will allow all readers to track their thinking and notice the patterns that emerge from their thinking. This will also be a valuable tool to assist the kids in taking what they have tracked and then use it to help write a response to their reading.
If your kids are more advanced readers, you will have a choice as this set contains 3 different Code the Text cards to choose from.
However, all readers (Second Language Learners, Special Ed, struggling readers and advanced) will benefit from learning how to code the text. The visuals and the mini posters will help you to teach your kids effective text coding!
