COMPREHENSION is KEY - in EVERY SUBJECT AREA
There are several comprehension strategies that focus on a particular skill with all needing strategic practice in order to become a good reader.
Can you remember all the different ways to prompt readers, within all content areas, for all different needs? Likely not. This resource puts several activities and examples right at your fingertips! Simply cut the cards, punch a hole in the corners, and slip on a ring.
This resource contains 44 individual cards (once cut apart) detailing the Think Aloud process, sentence stems to prompt readers in 8 separate strategies, and 8 mentor texts with a brief summary and a read-aloud link.
Who: Elementary Level
What: Think Aloud is a teaching strategy that allows students to hear the thought process of a good reader.

Where: Whole or small Group
Why: Think Aloud improves comprehension because the reader monitors their own reading and thinks about what they are reading.
How: Color-coded teacher task cards with Sentence Stems (Predicting, Questioning, Visualizing, Inferring, Making Connections, Summarize, Clarifying, Looking Back), along with Steps to Implement a Think Aloud, and Mentor Texts.
