Check for Understanding Song

Our Check for Understanding Song
(Tune: Hokey Pokey)
You have a great new book
and you’ve started to read
You know a lot of words but
there’s something else you need.
You must check for understanding
and ask “Who?” and also “What?”
that’s what reading’s all about!

I use the lesson in Stephanie Harvey's comprehension toolkit for monitoring comprehension. We generate as a class times that meaning breaks down and then strategies on how to fix it. We then make an anchor chart to hang in the room that the students refer to.
Since starting CAFE, I've noticed the students using the chart a lot more.

Comprehension Toolkit

Clip to ScrapBook #4

I also use Stephanie Harvey's Comprehension Toolkit (Strategies that Work is also a great resource of hers) she uses lots of sticky notes to monitor her thinking as she reads. I've found that just by providing a basket of sticky notes, my kids are much more likely to actually STOP and think about what they are reading and make notes on the stickies about their reading. I can also use the stickies as a spot check to see if they are truly checking for understanding.

I found this one at the Christina Bainbridge website. Ran off on red cardstock. Works great!

Thanks so much for sharing a printable resource. With budget cuts this year, we won't have money to order any materials. This will certainly help!

Mr. Bayer is very nice! I emailed my order to him (got email from his website) and he charged a much lower rate for shipping.

I use green, large tongue depressors and put a checkmark and then "for understanding". The kids know to get one before read to someone and the listener holds onto it as a reminder. I use an anchor chart w/ the question words.

I bought the wooden check marks a few years ago, but I also use Christina's for bookmarks. Everyone makes one at the beginning of the year to keep in their books as a marker. I also have just plain paper ones available at all times to use with library books, etc.

I am looking for a kid friendly coaching sheet that has check for comprehension as well as coaching for words. I can't find anything!!! The one below is adorable but has no coaching for words section. I am close to making one myself, but thought I would try to avoid reinventing the wheel if it has already been done! BTW, I teach 2nd grade, so looking for a simple one.

I think the checks were in the Bonus catalog a few years ago. I have not seen them lately.
