• Reading Strategies

     

    Before Reading Strategies:

    Look at the title

    Look at the bold words or illustrations

    Think about the topic

    Think about what you already know about the topic

    Predict what the story will be about

     

    During Reading Strategies:

    Visualize by creating a picture in your mind based on what you are reading

    Make predictions as you read

    Check to see if your predictions were correct

    Use context clues to help with tricky words

    Retell parts of the story

     

    After Reading Strategies:

    Summarize important information

    Make text to text connections (Does this text make you think of another text that you read?)

    Make text to world connections (Does this text make you think of something in your world?)

    Make text to self connections (Does this text make you think of something in your own life?)
