This organizer asks students to monitor their understanding while they read. When they come to a word, sentence, or phrase that confuses them, they use a strategy to clarify their misunderstanding. The organizer lists several examples of strategies students may use, but I never limit them if they choose to use one that is not listed.

Now, for some suggested mentor texts because I would much rather use picture books when I'm first introducing an organizer!
This is a great text to model how readers need to closely observe and integrate what is happening in both the pictures and the words.
Use this book to model how to decode a multi-syllabic word and how to use context to determine the meaning of an unknown word. You will authentically need to model rereading to understand!
Now, I'm sure there's a ton of great mentor texts out there for this strategy. I would love to hear your suggestions!
