Super Connectors


I am always striving to be a good connector for my kids, to set the example first and show how it's done. And I always start the same way every year with the same books, The McDuff Series by Rosemary Wells. I love McDuff the dog, he reminds me of my dog for starters and so as soon as I make a connection to my own dog then I'm off and running with dog connection stories.  But my kids need a lot of help knowing what to connect to, so I use Super Connectors as a way to help pinpoint what we as readers (especially beginning readers) connect to. This will give you an idea of what it looks like.
You can click on the picture below to download all the Super Connectors.

    1. Hi Olivia! Thanks for visiting, I am so happy that you are my newest follower! I think Super Connectors would be great for 5th grade too. If you check a few posts back I have Daily 5 posters that would work for 5th grade also.
