PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This chart is a great way to help students organize their thoughts on the book they are reading. We use the chart during guided reading centers to help understand nonfiction but you could also use it for fiction texts as well.

The first part of the pyramid is where the students uses the title or pictures to find the main idea (ex: corn). Next, the students create two questions to focus on as they read the text (ex: how is corn grown?, why is corn important to American Indians?). After they read the tex, the students use the guiding questions to write down 3 details they learned from the text that support the main idea and questions they created.

My students loved using this in guided reading; it could also be used with longer books if students create questions for each chapter.

*This chart will be free for a limited time in The Caring Classroom Community!
