WHAT ARE READING COMPREHENSION CRAFTS?
This product has a simple craft for each of 9 reading comprehension skills. The crafts are designed to be used after you teach the reading strategy (lessons not included). The use of a craft related to a reading strategy helps to connect learning through cross-curricular methods AND it addresses various learning styles (auditory, kinesthetic, and visual). Included with each craft, you also get a definition card. This card is used to have students write the definition of the reading strategy in their own words. This allows you to see if students are understanding WHAT the strategy is...this is important because you can move on to seeing if the student is using the strategy after they can explain what the strategy is - look at the definition card and craft as a bridge between you teaching a strategy and a student showing automaticity with the strategy.
WHAT READING COMPREHENSION STRATEGIES ARE INCLUDED?
- ask and answer questions
- determining importance
- making predictions
- making inferences
- check for meaning
- making connections
TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE CRAFTS
Each craft requires you to copy the related pages, have student color/cut/glue the pieces together, and write the strategy definition. The only projects that require additional materials are: making inferences (a small brass fastener per student) and making connections (yarn or string). Some of the projects are flat and others are three-dimensional.
WHAT DO I DO WITH THE CRAFTS?
After you check the definition cards, you can hang the crafts from ceiling hooks, a clothesline or make a great bulletin board display. These crafts make a wonderful reference as you work with groups or conference with individuals...remind them of the project and the related strategy.
