So how do we get our students to make connections to the text, think while they are reading, and focus on what is most important......MEANING??
When I was in the classroom, I had great success with using the following anchor chart, Reading is Thinking. It is a great way to kick off a mini-lesson by presenting the thinking strategies that they will be learning about and USING EVERY DAY...really for the rest of their lives.

In my opinion, the 6 most important reading strategies are:
- asking questions
- making connections
Never try and do all of these strategies in one day! Depending on the grade level you teach, you may want to spend a whole week on each thinking strategy before moving on to the next one.
