“Reading With a Pencil” Annotation Symbols

Students know that “Reading Is Thinking” and to show our thinking during reading we have been learning to take notes using annotation symbols.  Here are the symbols that we have learned to use.  This is also a great way to find out if your child is thinking while reading.  Ask your child what the main idea was of the reading, ask them to tell you something that was predicted or inferred, ask them if there was anything that wasn’t understood….

Please support your child in becoming a deep thinker when they read!
