Text to Text Connection Anchor Chart


Over the last few weeks we have been doing a Jan Brett unit. The first week we read The Mitten, last week we read The Hat and this week we read Annie and the Wild Animals. While looking for small group reading books I ran across this book titles The Hat. It was more like Jan Brett’s The Mitten except the animals were in a hat instead of a mitten. We talked about text to text connections and how The Hat that they read in small group made them think about The Mitten that they had read in large group. (I got the idea for these anchor charts on Pinterest).

Below is our comparison chart of The Mitten by Jan Brett and The Hat by Michael Shannon. I was pretty amazed at how well this student was able to make text to text connections. Recalling story information is usually pretty difficult and she normally just makes up random unrelated stuff.
