Guided reading skill: I enjoyed reading this site because she explained basic worksheets are also good. This worksheet has questions in which students read their books first and then explain what they read.
Games for the classroom: FREE Read and retell game. Love this idea to pass the dice around the room and have 6 students roll and retell. or I could roll as the teacher and choose students to retell. This would also work great for small reading groups.
Making Connections: Comprehension strategies that good readers use when they read according to Mosaic of Thought. Many great graphic organizers like this one for making CONNECTIONS (to the character, to the setting, to the problem)
