One Week To... More Meaningful Connections!
This is the second installment of a reading comprehension series I've been working on. Each "week" focuses on one strategy and provides detailed instruction and activities to help kids master the skill and use it effectively.
This pack is all about CONNECTING! Connecting is a powerful meta-cognitive comprehension strategy, but many students make only surface-level connections that don't truly help them make sense of their reading.
This 1 week unit aims at helping kids understand the power of connecting (both in reading and any area of learning) and to help students learn to seek out meaningful connections.
