Sentence stems are the perfect way to provide students with the opportunity to speak and write about a text! The structure allows students to not feel pressure about getting the structure “just” right, as it is already set up for them!
The sentence stems will help students practice reading and comprehension skills using a structure that will help promote critical thinking. The goal is for students to eventually become independent.
This set is perfect to display on a bulletin board to reference and use during whole group discussion. Print the Ring Cards to use during guided reading groups or when students are working with partners.
Comprehension & Reading Strategies included:
→Striped Posters: Each poster includes 4 sentence stems and definition. Pick between a fun font header or simple font header. All sentence stems are in the same font. You also get to pick if you want yellow on the sentence stem area or not. I made this choice after I printed mine and thought that the yellow may be hard to read far away.
→Black and White Striped Posters: Exactly the same as the striped colored posters, but print on bright paper to save ink!
→Speech Bubble Posters: Each poster includes the SAME sentence stems as the striped but also includes ONE more. Also includes definition. This set also has two header font choices. (Does not currently come in black and white)
→Rings Print 4 comprehension and reading strategy cards on one sheet. Cut out and place on a ring to use during guided reading groups or small groups. Covers and backs provide. This comes in color and black and white.
