Here is our fourth installment of using effective anchor charts and interactive Power Points for teaching reading skills to your students. Enjoy! This is focused on making connections.
Connections Anchor Chart
Below is an anchor chart we made regarding the reading strategy of connections. As you can see, we included lots of color. This makes it visually appealing for students. We feature the connections of text to self, text to text and text to world.
Connections Power Point
The focus of this PowerPoint is for students to identify the three different types of connections: text-to-text, text-to-self, and text-to-world. These connections are important for students to understand. Our Power Point is ready to go for you in the classroom. It is easy to use and will engage your students.
Our Power Points are all interactive, which means that your students are actively involved in the learning process! No more boring books that students don’t connect too! It includes examples for all the connections and provides students with opportunities to talk to each other. We use the strategy of think-pair-share to get students talking to each other.
When making connections, students are required to think about how it connects to their lives, a book they have read, or to things that are happening in the world. We have included slides that allow you to teach right away. We focus on how students can become good readers. Teachers need to provide the skills necessary for students to be successful when reading. Make sure to take the time to go through each slide with your class. A reading notebook would be a good idea to have for students. They can record down their ideas.
Learning can be fun, so go ahead and try out our interactive PowerPoints to teach these important reading skills! Reading can take you anywhere! Click here to find it now!
