I love using a Reader's Notebook to increase reading comprehension. A goal I have for myself for next year is to increase readers' use of sticky notes to mark their thinking. After digging around for a bit on Pinterest and the Internet, I came up with the following visual.
This PDF can be turned into a poster or simply printed and stapled into readers' notebooks. It is designed to help readers track their thinking on sticky notes, which in turn, help the teacher see the areas in which the students need help or have mastered.
You can pick up a copy by clicking here.
I also felt like this is not solely for reading class, either. Why not add a copy of it to our Social Studies or Science notebooks? There is so much reading comprehension that needs to happen for full understanding in these subjects as well.
What about you? Do you already use this method? Is there anything you do differently? I'd love to hear your strategies!
