Synopsis

Think aloud as you read from a novel, a textbook, or any kind of book and watch your students become confident, fluent readers! With this simple, powerful technique, you can show students how you use strategies such as inferring, visualizing, and summarizing. Finally, students can "see" what good readers do and apply it to their own reading process. Think alouds are great for struggling readers, because they make reading an active, social experience. Includes engaging activities like Open Mind, Fish Bowl, Thought Bubbles, Post its, and more. For use with Grades 3-8.
