My Talking with the Text resource allows students to use icons to help them understand what they read. They are able to make connections and think deeper with these helpful icons. This resource is loved in my classroom. Create a poster of the Talking with the Text icons and give each student their own reference sheet to put in their binder. At the beginning of the year, teach these icons through picture books. As the year progresses have students use more than three icons. For upper grade students, they also need to share why they choose the icon and how it relates to the reading. This is a FANTASTIC comprehension helper!
