Making Connections to Text: Let’s Learn! Want to learn how to put making connections in place in your classroom to improve your students’ reading comprehension skills? Well, I know you just said yes. LOL. While the terminology “making connections” has been around for some time, there are some misconceptions for how to teach it to our kiddos.
What’s also super cool about these strategies is that they will work for ANY CLASSROOM, ANY GRADE LEVEL. I have used these exact comprehension anchor charts in first grade all the way up to sixth grade, and I know you could even go higher (or lower to kindergarten).
If you know me, or follow my blog, you KNOW I am a major fan of anchor charts. Yes, anchor charts will change your whole teaching life!!! There are three main ways that students must be able to connect to text and I have three FREE making connections anchor charts just for you and your students. 🙂
- Text to Self connections
- Text to Text connections
- Text to World connections

Have an amazing day and best wishes!
