Doesn't have to be this cutesy, but I love the idea of text to self, text to text, text to media, and text to world connections in a foldable to help students "get it."

TEXT TO WORLD CONNECTIONS. It's important that we are continuously making worldly connections to everything that we do in the classroom. We want our students to see how beneficial their academia is to their lives in the long run. Even a worksheet as simple as this can spark a lot of conversation, just simply when reading a book. - Kaitlyn Griep
This is perfect! How many times do kids just make random connections that get them away from the text instead of into it?
