This unit includes everything you'll need to help your students master making connections. Introducing text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections is a snap when you introduce each connection separately. I've included 2 styles of organizers for students to use while they're working on simply connecting to text. Once they've learned to anchor their connections to the text, they can build their metacognitive awareness using graphic organizers that prompt them to explain how their connections deepened their understanding of the story. After you've worked on all 3 types of connections, your students will show what they know as they make a "Making Connections Mobile."
This unit includes:
* Classroom poster set
* Making connections mobile (student project with rubric)
* Differentiated graphic organizers (with primary and intermediate lines)
