Make Reading Come Alive
(Aligned to Common Core, Webb’s Depth of Knowledge, and Backward Design.)
Teachers everywhere are under pressure to apply Common Core and state standards in their classroom. Here are resources to connect kids daily to in-depth thinking and writing about reading. The rigorous questions are kid-friendly. The teacher can use a question to model thinking and get a lively collaborative discussion going in minutes. These five resources are not only for teacher modeling and collaborative discussion but also for paired interaction, and for independent journal writing. They correlate with “I Do,” “We Do,” “You Do” and can be adapted as essential questions or “Ticket Out” tasks.
Here is a review of our 5 resources that are for sale in our store.
Post them anywhere in your room, or print the task cards for students to use in groups, in centers, or for independent writing. Several posters can be placed together on a board so that you can refer to them throughout the week. The matching task cards will help kids focus on key concepts you are emphasizing in class. Spiral notebooks work well for students’ written responses to these types of questions. They are able to refer to pieces they have written to review concepts and to monitor their progress in writing about reading.
Use these question posters and task cards to help your students master the different reading-writing strategies. These resources can be used with any text and are best suited to grades 3-8.
