Product Description
Are you looking for a way to integrate reading strategies and reading skills into all content areas? This resource is the perfect way to practice those important nonfiction skills while creating an adorable display!

This resource was created because my students are always in need of extra practice with their reading skills and reading strategies, especially with informational text. However, with the constant demands on me during the day, I needed to find a way to keep these reading skills and reading strategies in the forefront of their minds as I was teaching other content areas, such as social studies and science too! That’s when I created these engaging pennants to grab my students’ attention and still focus on what was needed in the classroom.

These pennants, or bunting flags, are created to cover many nonfiction concepts that you will cover in your reading instruction and in your science and social studies curriculum.

This resource covers the following reading strategies and reading skills

✓ making connections
✓ asking questions
✓ visualization
✓ summarizing
✓ making inferences
✓ determining importance
✓ synthesizing
✓ using background knowledge
✓ using images in text
✓ making predictions
✓ using text features
✓ using text structures (text organization)
✓ cause and effect
✓ main idea and supporting details
✓ author’s purpose
✓ compare and contrast
✓ fact and opinion
✓ sequencing
✓ paraphrasing
✓ author’s viewpoint
✓ point of view
✓ figurative language
✓ literal meanings
✓ problem and solution
✓ vocabulary

Additionally, you’ll find that there are two different versions, one large and one small. The larger version is a full page that contains more graphics and questions for the students to think about. It would make a perfect display in the hallway. The smaller version contains two to a page and has just a main question. This is perfect for interactive notebooks or as a series of student work, taped together, and displayed as a long banner.

These pennants can be used for reading response, early finishers, review activities, small groups, individual work, partner work, whole group, homework, and so much more!

The goal is to get students to think about and utilize these reading strategies and skills in all content areas, while engaging them.
