PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Fun, engaging activity has students make connections to any text, in the form of Text Messages. Students can make connections from text to text, text to self, and text to world. Includes several cell phone templates for a variety of uses.

Several cell phone templates included to print and use for any text—includes poems, short stories and novels. May also be appropriate for informational texts as well. Pick the template that best fits your classroom and needs.

Contents:
Text Connections! Single page worksheet: Includes one phone labeled for text to text, text to self, and text to world. Students complete each cell phone with one or more text messages showing the connections.

Text to Text Connections: 3 phones, each asking students to connect the current text with another text. Students will need to find 3 text connections for the current poem or story. (May allow students to use movies or TV shows as “texts”—if so, can also limit students to using only one such connection of the three.)

Text to Self Connections: 3 phones, each asking students to connect the current text with themselves. Students will need to find 3 ways they can relate to a character, conflict, or scene in the current text. Best for longer works to give ample opportunity to find connections.

Text to World Connections: 3 phones, each asking students to connect the current text with the world. Students will need to find 3 ways they can relate the text to world events, past or present. May be history, current events, politics, or pop culture.

Blank/ You Choose: 3 phones instructing students to make text connections. Teacher can supply any requirements (at least one text-to-text) or let students choose which connections to create (maybe all text to world or text to self.)
