Say Something is a strategy that gets kids talking about books while reading together. It acts as a comprehension strategy as well. Once the rules have been explained to kids they can practice with their small group reading book. Kids read together a portion (2-3 paragraphs) and then stop and do one of the following:
• Make a connection
• Make a prediction
• Ask a question
• Make a comment
If a child cannot do any of those, s/he must re-read the selection until s/he can.
To scaffold the process I have made individual cards with prompts to help guide kids as they read together. I would run off multiple sets and laminate them and have them ready to go.
I have used these with small groups, novel studies and as a literacy center.
Good readers talk about what they read and this helps that process along.
The posters can be used to teach each one of the five responses and then they can be hung up on a bulletin board.
Both the posters and the cards come in color and black and white.
