The Grand Finale of The Reading Strategies Book ~ Check Out Strategy 13 ~ Improving Writing About Reading!

Hello and welcome to the final installment of Teaching Little Miracles' link-up:

Goal 13 - Improving Writing About Reading

This goal is mine, too!  I'm always trying to express myself in a more clear, succinct and interesting way when I write in my blog.  Writing well is a lifelong quest for many of us!

 *Strategy 13.7 - What's Worth Keeping

This skill is key in some many ways, and it's an essential skill when it comes to summarizing!

what's worth keeping

*Strategy 13.8 - Five-Sentence Summary

I LOVE and use this strategy all the time!


I love how this anchor chart incorporates transition works, too!

*Strategy 13.10 Note Taking Helps to Understand Non-Fiction

This is the perfect lifelong skill that helps all through school, college and beyond!  I wish someone had taught me this back in the day (sometimes I wonder how I survived without all this direct instruction; although I guess in the end we adapt and teach ourselves):

taking notes

I demonstrate this strategy with my third graders as I make live-action anchor charts when we read in our Science and Social Studies books.  Before they know it, they'll need to read the book themselves and take notes.
