Making Connections Board Game contains 30 paragraph game cards and a game board to help students practice reading texts and making text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connections based on the information contained within those texts.
As students make connections within this game, they earn points. This point system is designed to incentivize students to make more difficult connections. Making a text-to-self connection earns 1 point, making a text-to-text connection earns 2 points, and making a text-to-world connection earns 3 points.
This Making Connections Board Game works great as a pair/group activity, or for use in literacy centers when teaching the skill of making connections!
Included with this Making Connections Board Game:
•Instructions for play
•30 paragraph game cards
Note: Because connections are personal to each student, there are countless possible answers for each card. However, to help students, I have included a sample answer on the back of each card for one type of connection.
