I think that you will find my Reading Quadrant pack will be a wonderful asset to any weekly story, classroom book study, or any type of reading at all!
I have my students work on them either independently or with a partner and then we share our findings! It’s a great way to discuss various comprehension methods, such as finding the author's purpose, discussing theme, focused vocabulary studies, connecting text to world, text, and self, main idea and detail studies, and so much more!!
I have included a
* “Student Help Sheet” to help the students get acquainted to the terms that are introduced through the tasks.
*25 Comprehension Reading Quadrants - What I have done was take 25 comprehension skills and strategies and interchanged them into different combinations, ensuring that no matter what it is that you are reading (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, basal readers, the newspaper, etc.), you will find a quadrant that is "just right" for you and your class!
*10 blank quadrants, so that you can customize your own comprehensive tasks!
*24 individual text-study practice sheets!
I think you will see that by using this packet, your students will become more aware of details as they read and will better understand the text! This should make teaching and practicing some of the comprehension skills a little easier, as they do it on a weekly and/or daily basis!
I hope you enjoy them and use them as much as I do!
