And the creativity keeps on rolling! I am in total back to school mode, especially since my summer is officially over. I am teaching summer school this year and this past Thursday was my first day back. No more summer for meL.
I now must make my weekends count! So, today I started my day off relaxing and sunbathing at New Smyrna Beach. Beach days are always a great way to kick off the weekend. Although my beach day was short, I didn’t mind because I got to come back to my new addiction, “My blog world!”
I also had time to create some reading strategy posters for my classroom. I have seen so many different types of reading strategies/comprehension strategies on TPT and I love them all. However, all of the samples I have come across weren’t quite right for my classroom. See, I teach Kindergarten and mainstreamed ESE (Exceptional Student Education) students. Therefore, I find I really have to keep anything I do simple and straight to the point. So I made a set of the 5 important reading strategies I thought would best fit my little readers.
These are free on my TPT store. Click here if you want to download them.
Sometimes I wonder if it is too simple/easy. Maybe I should try to add more to challenge my students? I kept going back and forth with this question all day. And I thought each year is different. Why not start small and build as the year goes on. So 5 strategies is what I came up with for now, but as the year progresses maybe I will add some more. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. Any suggestions on what I should add?
