Before I start my Guided Reading stations, Literature circles, or even reader's workshop, I explicitly teach and model reading strategies; specifically what is making connections. What't the difference between surface connections and deep connections. What is text to self, text to world, text to text, and text to media. All of the different types of connections that can be made.... This instruction and practice benefits both the kiddos and their work for the year to come. I created this product to be used as a TO, WITH, BY concept, it was also created to be used with any text. This can be a whole class novel, picture book...etc.
**These pages are the perfect size for a composition notebook and can be used in interactive notebooks, or writer's notebook.
