How to help your little readers learn that reading is THINKING!
This package includes:
* A key with THINK symbols
* Posters for each THINK symbol and sentence stems
* Mini sentence stem posters for students to put on a ring.
*Page for students to place their post-it notes (thinking) about the book they are reading.
*Bookmark with Think symbols and sentence stems
*Write a letter to a character
*Parent letter from students
Using THINK SYMBOLS is a great way to help your students
understand that reading is thinking. Students can stop
whenever they are reading to write down what they
are thinking about. This quick tool works as a check-in for teachers to see what kids are thinking about as they read. Students are encouraged to write down their thoughts on post-it notes and put them on the “POST-IT” page.
In order to activate students’ thinking processes (metacognition), It would be beneficial to teach what thinking looks like during a whole group lesson and then in guided reading.
Eventually, students should be able to carry this thinking process into their independent reading books to demonstrate their thinking.
This is geared towards 2nd-3rd graders but can definitely be used in late first grade or even early 4th grade for struggling readers.
