Product Description
These codes are used when students are reading any fictional text. For my 4th graders, the students read, draw the symbol, and explain their thinking for the code. I have students provide schema and explanations to justify why they chose the code. This has increased reading comprehension in my classroom along with student participation. I have incorporated several ways for students to share them, whether it volunteer share or a game-like style, called musical shares.

I print a copy for each of my students to keep in their reading notebooks. Be sure to check my site for the Non-Fiction Text Codes!

For example: <3 This was my favorite part in the text because I loved when the preacher finally accepted Winn-Dixie. I knew when he petted the dog, she would be theirs forever. (This was an actual text code provided by a student in my classroom)

This could be adapted to lower grade levels by highlighting codes in various colors or marking them with Post-It Flags.

**Happy Text Coding** :)
