Ways to Connect with Reading

We are working on making connections while listening to or reading a story.  The following will be helpful to discuss with your child after reading or listening to a story.

 

  • Self-to-Text Connection: Students relate what they read to a personal experience they may have had in their own life.  Maybe the setting, characters or events remind them of something that happened to them!
  • Text-to- Text Connection: Students relate what they read to another book or story they have read.  The events in the story remind them of events in another story!
  • Text-to-World:  Students relate what they read to something in the world.  The events or characters remind them of something in their world!
