Comprehension Skills/Strategies- The large ice-cream cone makes a fantastic visual in the classroom. There are a total of 15 skills and strategies included in this set. There is also a mini scoop page containing all the scoops, so students can have their own copy for a folder or journal. I have my students color the scoops to match the scoops I have displayed in my classroom. There is also a 2 pg. reference page describing all the skills and strategies for students. The scoops come in both color and black and white. If you choose to run them on colored paper, you may want to use card stock for durability.

*** NOW INCLUDED: Scoops on a Ring (These are perfect for reference during whole group or small group instruction.)

There are also scoops provided for students to record how they have applied a particular strategy/skill to a book they are reading. I use the larger scoop template when introducing the strategy or skill for the first time. There is also a page included with 2 smaller scoops. Students can choose 2 strategies, and then apply those strategies to either a class story or their library books.

*** The link below will give you an idea of how I use it in my own classroom:
