Teaching Comprehension Strategies Made Easy!
This product Making Connections Using Picture Books includes theory and rational pages explaining the reasoning behind using picture books to teach comprehension focusing on the area of making connections.
The product contains an anchor lesson using the picture book The Diary of a Spider. In this book the spider goes to school and experiences many of the same things your students do each day. It lends itself beautifully to teaching making connections since it relates to our students' daily lives. The idea of using a spider as our making connections symbol also lends itself beautifully since spiders connect webs in order to catch what they need (food) much like we use connections to catch what we need when reading (meaning).
This product contains another anchor lesson teaching students to connect various text ideas to one another as well as graphic organizers for use throughout the year with any book. Included also is a Connecting Spider Poster to display as a teaching tool.
