Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Connections: Let's connect together - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Reflection: Exposing students to the three types of Connections allows them to dig deeper into this strategy. It’s a great step for kids to notice when they make Connections and name it but it’s an even better step when they can reflect on what type it is. Text to Self is the easiest and most common for kids. Text to Text is the type that I hope kids will start to make and will coach kids to make more often through strategy groups and book clubs. Text to World is the hardest for kids to understand so I try to provide examples of it as often as I can during our Read Aloud times.
