Use these thinking stems to prompt metacognitive thinking and discussions about reading in your classroom!
Print these thinking stems, cut them out, and laminate them. Then, glue them to popsicle sticks and keep them handy in your classroom. These thinking stems are useful in several ways:
- Use when introducing new reading strategies to students as a visual to prompt metacognition.
- Use in small group discussions as options for students to pull from to share their thinking while reading or learning.
- Use as prompts to pass around the classroom as students read to self or with a partner.
- This resource can be used to get discussion between reading partners going while you circulate the classroom or teach a small group.
