Making Text Connections Recording Sheet

PDF | 1 page|Grades: K, 1 - 6

A recording sheet for making text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to world connections when reading a piece of text.

Use this recording sheet when teaching students how to make connections when reading texts.

Students will use pictures or words to fill in a text-to-self, text-to-text, and text-to-world connection they have made about a single piece of text.

Print out the resource and give each student a copy to complete, or project the resource onto your dry-erase board and fill out together as a class. Either way, it is a great way to practice making those connections!

This resource is great to use in guided reading groups with your students. Simply slide a copy into a dry-erase sleeve and have your students complete the recording sheet using a dry-erase marker. Then they can wipe clean when they are done and it can be used again and again.

Use the drop-down menu to choose between the PDF or Google slide version.
