Text Connection- Student Activities

Hello Everyone!!
Thanks for taking another peek!  I wanted to quick add a bit to my last post.  Text Connection is so important for comprehension.  I want to share a bit about how I get my kids independently practicing the connections they make with text.  All of these student activities coordinate with the anchor chart I've already posted.  Kids can make their own little Connection Hearts.  Have them cut out the 4 colors needed. Each color stands for a certain connection. Have kids write on each heart and staple together.
Kids can also use an activity sheet or their Literature Response Journals to record connections.
Here's to making connections!
