For students to be strong close and critical readers, they must know how to make connections while reading.
This activity includes:
- Informational handout explaining text to text; text to world; text to self connections
- 14 task cards that represent the three text connection types
- Completion handout for students to record responses
- Answer Key
These task cards are a great way for students to identify text connections and signal words for each type of connection! You can use these in centers, stations, as group work /partner work or for whole group instruction!
Teaching students to make connections is one of the best strategies teachers can teach students to help them become stronger readers!
