How many times have we heard "text-to-text, text-to-text, text-to-world'? This is a wonderful way to get kids to be fully engaged in making connections as they read and it will get them to want to read more!
â—The great thing about this is that if you lose one page of the lesson all you have to do is print out just that sheet.
â—Laminate the directions (icon driven for those students who have difficulty reading) and you're ready to go!
â—Ell teachers can easily translate the graphic organizer!
â—Can be used in whole group(read aloud), small group (story from core reader) and individual instruction.
â—What's amazing is that this activity can also be used for tutoring and homework.
â—Put it in a literacy center for weeks. All you have to do is change the story.
