Title: Reading Toolbox


1
Reading Toolbox
2
This year you will receive your own reading
toolbox!
  • Each month you will receive a new tool.
  • We will be completing activities at school using
    the strategies from each tool.
  • The tools will have helpful hints to work on a
    specific reading strategies at home.
  • Each month you should record the times that you
    have used your tool on your reading calendars.

Predicting
4
Predicting (Looking Ahead)
  • What do you think will happen next?
  • Why do you think so?
  • How do you think the story will end?

5
Predicting Family Note
  • Your child will be bringing home a reading
    toolbox this year. One tool will be added to
    the toolbox at a time. Each tool will represent
    a reading strategy. The first tool is the
    flashlight. The flashlight is used for
    predicting (looking ahead). Your child should
    use the flashlight four times this month at home
    and share their predictions with an adult. Each
    time the tool is used have your child put an F
    (for flashlight) onto the September Reading
    Minutes chart on the correct date. By the end of
    third grade your child will have a toolbox full
    of tools and a collection of strategies to help
    them to be successful readers.

Visualizing
7
Visualizing (Creating a Clear Picture)
  • What do you see while reading?
  • What do you feel while reading?
  • What do you hear while reading?
  • What do you taste while reading?
  • What do you smell while reading?

8
Visualizing Family Note
  • The tool for the month of October is a pair of
    safety goggles. The safety goggles are used for
    visualizing or creating a clear picture. Your
    child should use the goggles four times this
    month at home and discuss what is happening in
    the story with an adult. Visualization
    encompasses all senses not just what they are
    seeing but what the story might be helping them
    to feel, smell, hear or even taste. Each time the
    tool is used have your child put a G (for
    goggles) onto the October Reading Minutes chart
    on the correct date. Occasional use of the
    flashlight from last month can continue to
    promote good predicting!

9
Monitoring Comprehension
10
Monitoring Comprehension (Measuring Your
Understanding)
  • Does what I am reading making sense?
  • Do I need to reread?
  • If I am stuck, can I use the other words?
  • Is this a good book for me right now?

11
Monitoring Comprehension Family Note
  • The tool for the month of November is a tape
    measure. The tape measure is used to make the
    reader more accountable for what they are
    reading. This is something all good readers do!
    This month your child should be concentrating on
    becoming aware of times that they needed to
    measure their comprehension (use the tape
    measure) while reading. They should discuss this
    with you at home. Each time the tool is used and
    discussed, have your child put a TM (for tape
    measure) onto the November Reading Minutes chart
    on the correct date.
  • Occasional use of the flashlight and the
    goggles from previous months can continue to
    promote good reading comprehension!

12
Monitoring Comprehension Strategies from the
Family Note
  • Some things they might be doing while monitoring
    their comprehension
  • Rereading a sentence to get a better meaning
  • Rereading a sentence to self correct a word
  • Using the context to understand an unfamiliar
    word
  • Find familiar words within an unfamiliar word
  • Break the word into chunks
  • Use picture clues
  • Asking another person for clarification
  • Making a decision if the chosen book is a good
    fit for now

13
Making Connections
14
Making Connections (Pulling Out Past Experiences)
  • Does it make you think of other book you read?
    That is a text to text connection.
  • Does it make you think of something going on in
    your life? That is a text to self connection.
  • Does it make you think about something going on
    in the news? That is a text to world connection.

15
Making Connections Family Note
  • The crowbar is used when the students pull
    out
  • past experiences and use them to make
    connections
  • to what they are currently reading. Your
    child should refer to the crowbar each time they
    make a connection. Have your child put a C (for
    crowbar) onto the December Reading Minutes chart
    on the correct date. Occasional use of the
    flashlight, goggles and the tape measure will
    continue to promote good reading comprehension!
  • The tool for the month of December is a
    crowbar.

16
Survey
17
Survey (Look things over before you get started)
  • Non Fiction Text
  • Labels
  • Captions
  • Pronunciation Guides
  • Table of Contents
  • Glossary
  • Cutaways
  • Index
  • Maps
  • Types of Print
  • Comparisons
  • Diagrams
  • Close-ups
  • Fiction Text
  • Title
  • Cover
  • Jacket Summaries
  • Chapter Titles
  • Pictures

18
Survey Family Note
  • The tool for the month of January is a
    blueprint. The
  • blueprint is used to survey (or look over)
    the text before
  • reading. Your child should use the
    blueprint each time
  • they begin a new book. This helps them to
    activate prior knowledge and help them to make
    predictions about what they will be reading. Have
    your child put a B (for blueprint) onto the
    January Reading Minutes chart on the correct date
    each time they start a new book and use the
    blueprint. Occasional use of the flashlight,
    goggles, tape measure or crowbar will continue to
    promote good reading comprehension!

19
Questioning
20
Questioning (Turning My Thinking)
  • The QAR Reading Model tells us that there are
    four types of questions.
  • In the Book-Right There
  • In the Book-Think and Search
  • In My Head-On My Own
  • In My Head-Author and Me

21
Questioning (In the Book-Right There)
  • The information is found in one place in the text
  • Questions usually start with who, where, how
    many, when, what kind.
  • Ex. Where was Little Red Riding Hood going?

22
Questioning (In the Book-Think and Search)
  • The students will have to search in several
    places in the text to find the answer
  • The questions might be like this
  • What type of person was the character?
  • What caused the problem?
  • Ex. How did Little Red Riding Hood know her
    grandma was a wolf?

23
Questioning (In My Head-On My Own)
  • The answers arent found in the text. They are
    answered by using background knowledge.
  • The questions might be like this
  • Do you know?
  • Have you ever?
  • What is it like?
  • Ex. What do you know about wolves?

24
Questioning (In My Head-Author and Me)
  • Answered are completed by using the information
    in the text as well as information not in the
    text.
  • The questions might be like this
  • What do you think would happen if?
  • Would you agree that?
  • Ex. Do you think Little Red Riding Hood will go
    to her grandmas house alone again? Why?

25
Questioning Family Note
  • The tools for the month of February are
    screwdrivers. The screwdrivers are used for
    questioning. There are four screwdrivers, one
    for each for type of question. Your child should
    try to use each screwdriver at least once this
    month. Use these in the most convenient way for
    your family. Your child might develop questions
    and share their responses with you. You may
    develop one of each type of question and have
    your child answer it. If you are reading along
    with your child, you may informally ask questions
    and have your child tell you which type of
    question you asked. Have your child put an s
    (for screwdriver) onto the February Reading
    Minutes chart. Occasional use of the flashlight,
    goggles, tape measure, crowbar or the blueprint
    will continue to promote good reading
    comprehension!

26
Summarizing
27
Summarizing (Putting It All Together)What is the
main idea
  • Nonfiction
  • What is the main topic?
  • What are three facts about the main topic?
  • Fiction
  • What is the main idea?
  • Who are the main characters?
  • What was the problem in the story?
  • Was the problem solved? How?

28
Summarizing Parent Note
  •  
  • The tool for the month of March is the
    hammer. The hammer is used for summarizing or
    putting it all together. Summarizing can be
    done at the end of each reading session or at the
    end of a book. Each time the tool is used, have
    your child put an H (for hammer) onto the March
    Reading Minutes chart on the correct date.
    Occasional use of the flashlight, goggles, tape
    measure, crowbar or the blueprint will continue
    to promote good reading comprehension!
