Are you teaching the metacognitive strategy Make Connections?
This miniature anchor chart is PERFECT for the beginning of the school year, reading response journals, guided reading groups, literacy centers, mini lessons, group work, etc.
*A description of the strategy
*A "hands-on" activity for students to practice the strategy while reading (To make the spinner: give each student, student pair, or group a paperclip. Simply place the paperclip in the middle of each spinner and use the tip of a pencil to hold it in place. Flick the paperclip and voila! Spinner!)
*A quick check checklist for teachers to assess student progress during guided reading groups or otherwise.
