This unit was created so that students could reference mini anchors in their notebooks instead of having dozens of anchors hanging around the room. The students love them because it empowers them to find information that they need instead of having to ask or feel helpless. I love them because it sparks knowledge, conversations and learning throughout the year. Each anchor contains talking or question stems
Anchors Included: Main Topic Main Ideas Main Purpose Important Details Asking Questions Making Inferences Text To Self Text To Text Text To World Character Traits Retelling The Plot Central Message/Lesson Problem and Solution Characters Response To Challenges and Events Comparing and Contrasting Words Supply Rhythm Point of View (2 versions: traditional and common core) Connections Between Events and Ideas Text Features Illustrations and Photographs Fairytales and Folk Tales Determining the Meaning of Words Cause and Effect Fluent Readers
None of the anchors mention common core standards, however all literature and informational reading standards from common core are addressed.
