Comprehension Strategies

This is a complete set of comprehension strategies, anchor charts, and tons of graphic organizers that will make teaching many different reading strategies a piece of cake for any grade and any text. You can use these forms  with the whole class after read alouds, in groups, with a partner, in a center, or for prewriting about the text. You will have several options to choose from for each strategy. We included colorful copies for the teacher to use to model, and black and white versions for easy copying for your students. You can shink these pages to 85% and they will be perfect for your interactive notebooks! Your class will be having fun as you cover the common core standards requirements for your grade level and improving comprehension skills as well.   Colorful and engaging activities will get your students thinking about what they are reading with ease. You can find it in our TPT store by clicking the link below.

My Day Has Been Made!

Just got my picture made with Deanna Jump!!! For those who don't know all the teacher stars, she's our Elvis. She rocked the teaching world!! She is Teachers Pay Teachers' first million dollar woman. And she's sweeter than our Alabama tea.
