These monthly reading charts go beyond asking students to simply read, but to become engaged with the text before, during, and after reading. Each card has 20 reading activities that ask students to make connections, review their prior knowledge and what they’ve learned, identify with the characters and more.
I use these cards as a homework activity, in addition to reading each night, however you may wish to use this as an in-class activity. In addition to the cards, each student will also need an “Engaged Reading” folder or duotang to complete their work in. I have students use simple looseleaf to complete the activities on.
In this package you have both PDF and Microsoft Word versions of the cards. The Word versions are editable, but please be aware that not all title fonts may be compatible with your system so you may need to change the titles as well. Also included is a “Story Map Worksheet”, as a few months call for its completion.
