This fan holds a summary of comprehension reading skills to support students as they work independently in literacy centres: they are small anchor charts.

Students keep these fans on their desks or in folders to refer to as needed. The explanations jogs their memory and provides a novel, quick reference for students to flick through for information or to use during group or centre activities.

Each blade has a simple skill summary. Skills include;

1) Cause and Effect

2) Prior Knowledge

3) Predicting

4) Sequencing

5) Comparing and Contrasting

6) Fact and Opinion

7) Making Generalizations/Generalisations

8) Drawing Conclusions

9) Questioning

10) Visualizing/Visualising

You can laminate a few class copies, to scatter around or have hanging as an available reference.

You can also print individual copies for all students for individual use or give to particular groups working on a skill.

A suggested centre activity is simply reading and discussing the information on the blade. They allow students to recall and use the skills.

You have the choice of a US or Australian spelling version. You can also print in color or black and white.

The blades are held together with a split pin, (a brad) in US so you can include all or as many of the blades as you wish. You can add blades according to the skills and ability of individual children. Most students can cut and assemble these fans.

Students love the novelty of these fans. Something they haven't seen before, although the skills are familiar.
