This packet is designed to guide reading instruction using the method “reciprocal teaching”. Reciprocal teaching uses four main strategies to help students comprehend text: predicting, questioning, clarifying, and summarizing. Once the students know how to use these four comprehension skills, they should be able to do them automatically while reading all different texts.
These resources will support comprehension skills for reading literature and reading informational that are listed in the common core standards grade 1-3. See the tagged standards for more details of which standards are covered.
In this packet you will find mini-posters, worksheets, activities, and games that will encourage the use of these four main comprehension strategies.
