This lesson is geared specifically to 6-8 Reading Intervention, but it would be effective in any 6-8 reading class.
The focus lessons are "Good Readers Make Connections" and "Reading is Thinking."
This resource includes the following:
*Think Sheet (used as Bellwork)
*"Good Readers Make Connections" poster
*Read Aloud Reader Response (specifically geared to "Thank You, Mr. Falker" by Patricia Polacco)
*"Reading is Thinking" poster
*Independent Reading Reader Response
This is the lesson that I'm teaching on the first day that I have students. I teach six 50-minute classes (6-8 grade)
