I'd like to introduce to you, the Comprehension Club! They are a group of 7 kids (and a dog) that each have a specific reading strategy that they uutilize and will encourage your students to learn and use! The kids/strategies are:
~Predicting Pablo (the dog)
Your students will love to read the full-sized, big book narrated by Pablo the dog. The students will hear from each "strategy" kid and learn about the strategies and why they're important to know.
There are full-sized posters of each strategy kid and full-sized posters of thinking stems your students can focus on for the strategies. These posters would be perfect to hang around your small group reading table or reading center!
I've included a set of printables (2 per strategy) that have the students actually using the strategy with a text they're reading. There is a second printable for each strategy which has the students writing about each strategy and visualizing each one with a drawing.
There is a class book, with color cover, that your students can make that describes in drawing and writing a strategy they've used or are using.
Finally, there's a color and black and white award certificate you can present the kids that let's them know they are members of the Comprehension Club!
Please see the preview for a look at each page included. Your students will be very engaged and interact fully with the characters, while learning all about reading strategies!
