Reading without using strategies is not reading at all. This 9-page chapter, "Stay Focused While Reading," will teach students the importance of interacting with text. Students will learn five essential reading strategies. After the chapter is read and discussed, students will be ready to use the 5 'hands-on' strategy cards (included in this purchase) and put their knowledge to work.
In this lesson you get:
-"Stay Focused While Reading" chapter
-directions for making the 5-pack strategy cards to use year after year
These cards gently remind students to practice five strategies every time they read. You will see at a glance which strategies your students are using (and so will they).
The chapter can be read in one class period, but it can easily take an extra hour if strategies are discussed and exampled. The strategy cards can be used whenever your students are reading (either together or silently) in class.
