Text Connections

My neighboring teacher told me today that her class has been learning about a few kinds of connections during reading, which can include text-to-text, text-to-world, and text-to-self connections. There are probably more, but I can't remember right now.

One of her kids came up to her and it went something like this:

Student: "I made a connection during reading today."

Cheryl: "Great! What kind of connection?"

Student: "Text-to-cousin."

ROCK ON! I love when kids make up words and phrases. They make much more sense.
