Reading Comprehension: Choice Boards (Tic-Tac-Toe), Discussions Cards, & Plans using Metacognitive Thinking Strategies

Complete unit that will enable you to reinforce reading comprehension strategies through the introduction of five metacognitive thinking strategies. Students will begin with one reading comprehension response strategy a week and explore this strategy through your read aloud, think aloud, partner practice, and group discussion. Lessons are scaffolded so that students will, by the end of the week, be able to use the discussion cards and choice boards during centers and independent reading time with increased confidence in their reading comprehension strategies.
