Scaffold Comprehension Instruction

A Flapbook of K-12 Skills

ISBN: 978-0-9790186-9-5

by Smekens Education

When teaching reading, the focus should not be on the picture book, textbook chapter, or novel. The text is merely a tool. Simply reading a text and talking about its details isn’t teaching reading. Rather, instructional time must be spent on explicit lessons that teach students six ways to think about texts:

  • retell & summarize ideas
  • determine the main idea
  • visualize ideas
  • question author choices
  • connect within & among texts
  • synthesize ideas

This spiral-bound resource provides a flap-by-flap build of comprehension skills to teach throughout the year. Lesson concepts for every skill are differentiated for literature/fiction and informational text/nonfiction applications.

Grades K-12, Spiral-bound flapbook.
