These Reading Strategies Reference Guides are perfect for reading centers, literacy tables, small group work, guided reading, or simply for a quick reference.

I took 16 anchor charts and made them fit on cards specially designed for a key ring.

Laminate, hole punch at the top and put on a metal key ring for fast and easy access to reading strategies and examples – anytime!

Tip: Place these reading strategies reference guides in a central location where the teacher and students can access them when needed.

Includes 16 cards with reading strategies and examples:

Inferencing – students learn how to make inferences by taking what they learn from reading, what they already know, and then making an informed decision about the text

Sequencing – students learn how to put the events of a story in order with special attention to transition words

Connections – students learn to use what they already know to understand what they read using text to self, text to world, and text to text

Evaluating – students learn to give their opinion based on the information in a text including reasons to support their opinion

Context Clues – students learn to be a word detective using pictures, helping words, definitions, word parts, synonyms, and antonyms

Making Predictions – students learn to make an educated guess based off of first impressions conveyed through the title and illustrations of a text

Synthesize – students learn to take new information and combine it with what they already know (schema) to create a new understanding or perspective of the text

Determining Importance – students learn to differentiate between details that are simply interesting and those that are truly important in a text

Stop and Think – teaches students to stop, think, and retell while reading by using visualization, predictions, connections, and main idea

Drawing Conclusions – students learn to put together different bits of information to figure out what the text is about while paying special attention to facts and details and connecting ideas or events to put the pieces together

Theme – students learn how to find THE MEssage or big idea the author is trying to convey in a story by focusing on the problem, lessons learned by the character, and the characters feelings and actions in the story

Comprehension – students learn helpful comprehension skills: predict, visualize, question, connect, identify, infer, and evaluate

Visualize – students learn how to become better readers by paying special attention to the words in a text, creating mental pictures, and using their senses to connect to the characters, events, setting, and ideas presented

Main Idea – students learn how to find the main idea of a text by identifying what the text is mostly about and then looking for the supporting details that explain the main idea

Cause and Effect – students learn to look for clue words that identify the cause (why something happened) and the effect (what happened) to connect events in a story

Point of View – students learn to use clue words from a text to identify which perspective a story is told from focusing on 1st Person, 2nd Person, 3rd Person, 3rd Person Limited, 3rd Person Omniscient, and 3rd Person Objective
