Reading Skills & Strategies Posters I’ve been wanting to create Reading Skills and Strategies Posters since the beginning of the year. I started a set in September or October, but didn’t have time to complete them at that point in the year. I’m on a kick of trying to improve things this year so I can have more in place next year at the beginning of the year. Reading Comprehension is one area that needs major improvement. I created the posters to be reference points for myself and my students throughout the year. I pulled these skills strategies from several sources. Each organizer has the title, a prompt (a question related to skill or strategy) a sample graphic organizer and sentence frames (when applicable) to help students respond to the prompt in a complete sentences. When I teach reading comprehension, I usually provide my students with the vocabulary and sentence structure they need to answer the questions I’m going to ask them about the text. These are available in my TpT store.
