Scaffold Comprehension Instruction
A Flapbook of K-12 Skills
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.
