We are linking up with Just Reed for her Ten Pin Linky. This week the topic is Reading Ideas; that's an easy one for sure! We love teaching reading and we are constantly talking about ways to make our reading program better. Here are our 10 finds:
2 neat ways to handle Daily 5 that are new to us:
Using the SMART Board
A Punch Card System (Brilliant!)
A great Anchor Chart for Read to Someone
A "Reading Fair," which is like a Science Fair but with books (love this!!!)
Love how they use actual examples of Non Fiction Text Features (such an important lesson)
This Anchor Chart showcases all the Reading Strategies in one place; great!
Synthesizing is difficult to teach...this just may do the trick!!!
Author's Message is a favorite lesson to teach; love how this Anchor Chart has the covers of the
books on it! Great visual.
Our kiddos would LOVE this; Inference Investigators!
I think our kiddos would enjoy reading from our Big Books, need to give it a try this year!
