These are a set of "Making Connections" templates that can be used for any text or perhaps even a chapter from a novel. I designed this product with Debbie Miller's Reading With Meaning in mind. Students are to write about their connections and then draw a picture to illustrate their ideas. In the case of text-to-world connections, students complete the Venn Diagram.
I've included the checklist that I like to use in my classroom so that students can self-assess their work prior to handing it in. I love the idea of students taking responsibility for their own success in this manner. The checklist is written in kid-friendly language so that students know exactly what they need to do in order to be successful.
The preview shows all of the items included in this product.
If you need your template customized in any way, please let me know, I'd be happy to help!
Thanks for visiting my store!
