Text-to-Self Connections

When your child reads, you want him to think about how it reminds him of something he’s done or something he knows (his schema).  A good connection will help him understand the text better.  As he is reading, help him share those connections out loud and be willing to share your own connections as you read together.

A good text-to-self connection might sound like…

o       I know exactly how the character feels because when that happened to me…

o       Remember when…

o       Because I know about ______, I can understand _______.
