Comprehension Strategy Posters

I will be teaching reading again this year, and I decided to create my own comprehension strategy posters. Last year I had students create these for me as each one came up, but with two classes it just got confusing. Click here to see my posters. Again, they go with my Hollywood theme. Feel free to use these! Here is the bulletin board I made yesterday to display these posters.

It's not a very good quality picture, but you get the idea! I found that palm tree at Hobby Lobby for $3.00 earlier this summer. Also, I think the lights just make it fun. Hopefully I am not creating too much of a fire hazard! Here is a close up of one of the posters.

This is the one of the only areas of my room that has teacher created stuff like this. I try to keep other areas cleared off so that students can display their work and take ownership of our room. Hopefully once I get everything set up I can post some pictures of my room. I want to see pictures of how others are setting up their classrooms this year!


  1. Thank you so much! I teach 5th grade and really appreciate these.

  2. You're welcome! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Love the bulletin board and the posters... if I go back to teaching, I'm gonna use you as a resource!

  4. Thanks. This will help me and my students.

  5. Will surely try it here :)

  6. Hi Linda
    I am a fifth grade teacher in Australia and new to blogging. I love your blog and would love to adapt your poster on facts and opinions in my class. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hi there! I am so nervous, I have taught for many years, but nothing over 2nd grade. I will be teaching 5th grade in a new school this year and am SO nervous. Any tips that you you have would be so welcome. Thank you!!

  8. These are great! I was also thinking of teaching reading strategies and having students create an interactive notebook for reading strategies. I saw something on tpt and was inspired to do something similar.


  9. Reading Makes Your Child Smarter

    Reading is known to have numerous benefits. It increases your world knowledge, enhances your vocabulary, and works to improve your reading comprehension abilities.

    But did you know that reading can actually make you smarter?

    In fact, reading not only can make a child smarter, the very act of reading can even help to compensate for modest levels of cognitive ability in children by building their vocabulary and general knowledge! This is a finding reported by researchers Cunningham and Stanovich in a report titled "What Reading Does For the Mind".

    The simple fact here is that reading can make your child smarter, and that learning to read early on is directly linked to later success in life.

    1) Did you know that your child's vocabulary at 3 years old predicts his or her grade one reading success? [1]

    2) Did you know that vocabulary and reading ability in first grade strongly predicts grade 11 outcomes? [2]

    3) Did you know that your child's reading skill in grade 3 directly influences high school graduation? Studies have found that children who cannot read proficiently by grade 3 are four times more likely to leave school without a diploma than proficient readers! [3]

    But how do you teach a young child to read, and isn't that the job of the school and teachers?

    You can't be more wrong...

    With the right tools, knowledge, and techniques, teaching young children to read can be a simple and effective process. I'd like to introduce you to a fantastic reading program called Children Learning Reading, a super effective method for teaching children to read - even children as young as just 2 or 3 years old.

    The creators of this program have used it to teach their four children to read before age 3, and by reading, I mean real, phonetic reading.

    I can understand if you find that hard to believe... In fact, I had a difficult time believing it myself as well... that is, until I saw the videos they posted documenting the reading progress of the their children - not to mention all the videos other parents have sent in showcasing their children's reading progress after using the Children Learning Program. After learning more about their methods and techniques, it became clear how it's possible to teach young children to read effectively.

    It is truly within your ability to teach your child to read in a relatively short period of time spending just 10 to 15 minutes each day.
