Reading Strategies and Skills Pennants


Are you looking for a way to integrate reading strategies and reading skills into all content areas? This resource is the perfect way to practice those important nonfiction skills while creating an adorable display!

This resource was created because my students are always in need of extra practice with their reading skills and reading strategies, especially with informational text. However, with the constant demands on me during the day, I needed to find a way to keep these reading skills and reading strategies in the forefront of their minds as I was teaching other content areas, such as social studies and science too! That’s when I created these engaging pennants to grab my students’ attention and still focus on what was needed in the classroom.

These pennants, or bunting flags, are created to cover many nonfiction concepts that you will cover in your reading instruction and in your science and social studies curriculum.
