Engage your students in reading for a purpose by having them spin, think, and answer questions targeted at these specific comprehension strategies: making connections, visualization, predicting/inferring, questioning, synthesizing, monitoring.
Also included are two different response sheet formats for student written responses.
Read Around Instruction Ideas:
Students can use a Read Around spinner to answer questions about a book or story they are currently reading. They can write their answers in a journal or on the attached response page.
Partners can take turns using a Read Around spinner to answer questions about a book or story they are currently reading. Students can share answers aloud.
Small Group Instruction:
Teachers can use the Read Around spinners as they see fit in small group instruction. Answers can be answered and discussed as a group.
How to Make a Spinner:
Place a paper clip in the center of the spinner. Then, place the pencil point in the center of the spinner. The paper clip will spin around the pencil tip.
