PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With these Reading Chat Cards Teachers can make the most of every minute of their day. Now you can use your read-aloud time to introduce, reinforce or review strategies, skills, comprehension and/or content information.

These chat cards will help your students stay focused on the text and allow you to direct the conversation for instruction. These Chat Cards give students thinking stems to discuss with the group or partner.

The cards can be used during
-read aloud texts
-small group discussions
-whole class reading or content area instruction
-partner reading
-reading clubs
-literacy centers
-parent/child discussions at home
-individual reading conferences

There are 2 sets of cards in 3 different sizes. Set 1a-32a can be used with literary text. Set 1b-32b can be used with informational text.

The three sizes can be used in different instructions situations.
Small for individual students, keep them on a ring or in a baggie
Medium for small groups, book clubs or literacy centers
Large cards for whole group instruction or class read-aloud

Also included: Student Thinkmark which allows students to write about their thinking or what has been discussed with a partner or small group.
You'll also get student bookmarks, one for literary text and one for informational text. These can be given to students so they can have a list of all the response stems as they read.

Whether you choose the Chat Cards to use, or let students choose their own, you'll notice more student involvement with the text.
