Product Description
I love using this with students to help them become more independent in their book choices. It is an adaptation of the Reading Around the Text Strategy. It teaches students to do all of the things that we do without realizing it-- look at the cover, read the title, consider the author, read the front flap, back cover, or Summary on back of title page, read the 1st paragraph, then make yourself curious and ask some questions or make predictions.
I have a book for each student as we go through all 6 steps together. I model each step, then ask 2 to 3 students per step to do the same. You need to choose your books wisely-- they need to have CIP on the back of the title page; they need to be hardbacks so that you have inside flaps.
I run these front and back on card stock. You end up with 4 per page. Then students have the strategy with them and a new bookmark!
