TACKLE Reading Skills through Small Groups, Centers, and Independent Activities Cover

T.A.C.K.L.E. Reading Skills is a reading skills toolkit of patterns to use and reuse on work folders or wall charts. It supplies grades 3-5 center materials that are skill-based and can be used with a variety of texts. Students focus on and strengthen one reading skill at a time. Each skill is locked in as the students use higher-order thinking skills to create their own questions and answers. The centers deeply engage youngsters in skill learning and also foster greater understanding of text material as they become their own question makers.

Once introduced, the simple format for reading engagement works with progressively more difficult reading selections. The text is divided into three sections: Section 1 focuses on developing centers, Section 2 discusses skills, and Section 3 provides independent work activities to be used with students.

Learning objectives:

  • Recognize different types of questions.
  • Generate ideas within a group setting.
  • Use reading vocabulary.
  • Identify the definition of reading terms.
  • Change information to form new reading questions.
  • Answer questions to show understanding.
  • Make connections.
  • Create questions about the text.
  • Arrange information in graphic organizers.
  • Analyze characters.
  • Summarize a passage.
  • Monitor understanding of a text.
