am linking up with Deb at Crafting Connections to share this Reading Comprehension Anchor Chart.  When I saw this acronym on our County's resource page, I knew I had to make an anchor chart to illustrate it.  If you have ever used Larry Bell's UNRAAVEL strategy, then you will recognize this as a simplified version.  

To prove their answers, students simply write the corresponding paragraph # beside the question where they found text evidence that supports their answer choice.  I also have them underline or highlight the text evidence in the paragraph that helped them answer the questions.

If you love anchor charts like I love anchor charts, you will want to head on over to Crafting Connections. Deb hosts an Anchor Chart Linky party every Monday.  I just saw one on a previous linky about prefixes and suffixes that I need to make for my kiddos!


  1. Thank you so much for linking up, Sheila! I have never heard of the UNRAVEL strategy, but it sounds interesting. I absolutely love this anchor chart, and the connection between "unwrapping" the passage and the acronym! I pinned your photo!! THANKS!!

    1. You're welcome! I saw so many great anchor charts on your site. Happy to link up with you!
