PARENTS-Please click on the link below to discover UNRAAVEL--a great tool being used by Mrs. Theresa Martinez' Second Grade class to facilitate learning and aid in test-taking skills!
Larry Bell is the creator of the UNRAAVEL Reading Strategy . Our class made up the UNRAAVEL gestures using Whole Brain teaching so we could remember what the acronym, UNRAAVEL, means and be able to use it effectively.
A little about UNRAAVEL: It is a useful tool that our students use to organize and identify information as they read a passage. This strategy is very beneficial when taking a standardized test such as our weekly reading assessments otherwise known as cold reads, or fresh reads and the Stanford 10.
Underline the title.
Now predict the passage. Write an “I think…” statement.
Run through and number the paragraphs.
Are you reading the questions?
Are the important words circled or highlighted (in the question; which will lead you back to the answer in the text. Look for key words.)?
Venture/read through the passage.
Eliminate wrong answers.
Let the questions be answered with text evidence - underline the sentence(s) where you found your answer, AND write the paragraph # where you found the answer(s) next to the question.
Thank you for the privilege of sharing our UNRAAVEL with you.
