Text to Self Connections

We have been talking about how we CONNECT to books that we read by using our schemas or background knowledge. Through making connections, our understanding becomes deeper of what we have read. We can begin to feel what the characters are feeling and really get a sense of author’s purpose and any lessons that we can learn from a story.

One type of connection is called a text to self connection. Good readers will think “Wow- when I read the part about: _______ ,it reminded me of: __________.” Or in other words- that book connects to ME.

I would absolutely love to hear a text to self connection you have had with a book. Remember to use the correct text to self connection language- when I read about:______ it reminded me of:___________.

You are a brilliant class! Room 203 is shining!!
