"Reading Salad"

     So I was at a meeting a couple weeks ago and another teacher from Owensboro was telling me about a book she uses in her reading class.  I ordered it from Amazon and started reading it and is has the best ideas to increase comprehension!  The first lesson we did was creating a reading salad and I was able to model to the students how we should stop and making connections to our reading when we are reading any type of passage.  I had a couple of helpers to make the salad as I was reading the book "Don't Laugh at Me", which is also a great conversation starter for how we should treat others.  I am using this resource during our RTI time and cannot wait to the rest of the lessons- I know it will make a positive impact!

Here is a copy of the book I'm using to increase student reading comprehension!
