4S Brainstorming

Picture It

Students read the text, focusing on picturing a setting or situation in their minds.

Students list details from the text that help them create a mental picture.

Students make a drawing from the list of details.

  • Every student is given scraps of paper, or sticky notes.

  • Topic is announced.

  • Students write an idea related to the topic on a sticky note, say itout loud, then placeitin the middle of the table.

  • This continues until time is called.

  • Then students work together to categorize ideas.

  • Roles: Super supporter, Speed captain, Synergy guru (combine ideas), chief of Silly (encourages crazy ideas)

What’s Up?

Book Look

Give students 1-4 min. to survey the text

Look at text in whole group, then in pairs

Discuss pictures/captions

Read bold faced words/definitions in margins

Read charts, graphs, maps, diagrams

Listen & discuss inner voice conversations

Make connections to prior knowledge

Discuss predictions

Record questions

Students choose graphic organizer (individually)

Choose a during-reading strategy that fits

Gather materials to apply that strategy

If surveyed in pairs, share summaries whole group before reading

  • Pick a short text

  • Allow students time to scanthe reading

  • Ask students about genre(fiction or nonfiction) indirectly

  • Students begin by describing content; make them proveeach statement (by opening text & telling others where to go)

  • Continue proving “What’s up” for reading until students have surveyed all pictures, charts, graphs, maps, questions, indexes, & table of contents

What’s It All About?

Catalog of Ideas

Students write the topic in the center.

Have students randomly pick four items from a catalog and write one in each space.

After students reflect on the similarities & differences of the topic with each catalog item, have them write their comparisons in each box.

Everyone Read To…

RIVET/Guess My Word

Choose 3-4 key terms from the reading.

In a “hang-man” fashion, write the word using dashes. One by one (or as blends), add a letter until the students can guess the word.

Students guess & spell. Confirm or add more letters until the correct word is identified.

Discuss its meaning.

Continue until all key words are revealed.

Students read to find these words in the passage.

  • Students look at the title, pictures, &/or headings in the reading.

  • Then they generate questions that they have that might be answered in the text.

  • Students read to find the answers.

Anticipation Guide

Word Sorts

VOCABULARY

Students copy vocabulary terms on 3 x 5 cards, one word per card.

Students sort the words into categories (made by teacher or generated by themselves)

PREREADING & SUMMARY

Choose important & interesting words from the reading, write each word or phrase on a small piece of paper

Give students a baggy full of these words/phrases & have them order themso that they make sense

As they read the text, they check & correcttheir prediction

Then, they can mix up the words & reorder them, using them as a basis for an oral or written summary

  • Identify major concepts you want students to learn from reading.

  • Determine ways they might support or challenge the students’ beliefs.

  • Create 4-6 statements that address important points of reading.

  • Ask students to react to each statement (true or false)

  • Students read to find evidence that supports or disconfirms their responses.

Semantic Map

KWL

Help students predict & connect new information with prior knowledge.

  • Write the subject in the middle

  • Students think of as many words that relate (what they already know, then what they learn/infer from the reading)

  • Categorize words that relate after they read

  • Discuss map: students listen & share, becoming aware of new words, gather new meanings for familiar terms, & see relationships among numerous words associated with the lesson.

(LtL) Chart

Help students predict & connect new information with prior knowledge.

  • Survey what you are about to read (title, headings, illustrations, read first paragraph, read summary)

  • Question (turn the title into a question= major purpose for reading, write down questions that come to mind, turn headings into questions, turn illustrations into questions, write unfamiliar vocabulary)

  • Read actively (search for answers to your questions, generate additional questions)

  • Recite (look away from book to recall what you read, reread text for unanswered questions)

  • Review (answer the major purpose for reading, look over answers to organize information, create a graphic organizer or write a summary or have a discussion to summarize the information)

Fix-Up Strategies

Teach your students how to get “unstuck” when they come across text that they do not understand.

Make a connection between the text and your life, your knowledge of the world, or another text.

Make a prediction

Ask a question and try to answer it.

Visualize.

Retell what you’ve read.

Reread.

Slow down (when confused) or speed up (when familiar or boring)

Read aloud.

Draw a picture or diagram of the information.

Mark-It-Up

Everyone in the room will stand up and share one thing he/she learned about (or already knows about)…

You may sit as soon as you’ve contributed a new idea.

Ways to use it in my class:

  • Use pencils, highlighters, highlight tape, sticky arrowsto mark text

  • Divide reading into manageable sections

  • Ask students to read silently & work as word watchers

  •  Students circle “sparkling” words

  •  Students box unknown words, & underline context cluesthat help them predict the meaning of the word (show which clue you used by numbering the boxes)

    1 Appositives, 2 Synonyms, 3 Antonyms, 4 Greek & Latin roots, 5 Prefixes & suffixes, 6 Back track, 7 Forge ahead, 8 Restate, 9 Graphic clues

  • Share those words with their reading partner & aloud

  • Complete the entire text in this manner

Helps students discern a term’s meaning by comparing its features to those of other terms that fall into the same category or class.

  • Set the tone (music, comfy seating, etc.)

    • OPTION 1:

      Text: _____________________ Pages: _____

      Chunk of Reading from _____ to _____.

      Partner A reads a paragraph out loud.

      Partner B summarizes what Partner A read. “What I think I heard you say was…”

      Partner B reads the next paragraph

      Partner A summarizes it.

      Continue this process until the whole article has been read and all questions have been answered.

QAR

Capturing Context Clues

Students use clues from the passage to help them figure out two unfamiliar words.

Then they write a definition in their own words.

This is a way to help students realize that the answers they seek are related to the type of question that is asked; it encourages them to be strategic about their search for answers based on an awareness of what different types of questions look for.

    • Identify the resource & page #s of the material to be read.

    • Students identify the main idea of the reading.

    • Students select examples & support for the main idea & then write a summary based on the information in the graphic organizer.
