PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This freebie was inspired by one of my sweet former colleagues. Beth took pictures of her students doing the cross-checking hand motions, glued them onto chart paper and wrote out the steps. It was brilliant! So, of course, I took the idea and gave it my own computer-generated spin. I took pictures of four students sitting next to each other modeling each step of the cross-checking process, added them to my word-processing software, typed out the steps with cute fonts, and then hit print! This poster goes into the Read to Self and Read to Someone baskets in my centers. :) This is a nice visual reminder of how to cross check while reading since each motion matches with words. It's brain-friendly too!!!! :)

I love this...just wished it showed DIVERSITY of students
On  July 29, 2012One Extra Degree answered:
I don't know if you noticed that this poster isn't entirely clip art. I used my students as "models" for the arm motions. I happened to work in a very rural district with very little diversity at the time. There were three African Americans in our entire school population of 800-ish kids (Prek- 5th). We did not have any Hispanics or Asians or Pacific Islanders or Middle Eastern kiddos in the district. That was just the make-up of my classroom, so my only "models" were Caucasian. That's why I had to match the clip art faces up to match the skin color of the "models" arms. I worked in an inner-city school previously where it was the opposite, and I currently work in a suburban school with A LOT of diversity. If I were to make this same poster NEXT YEAR or if I had made it THIS PAST YEAR, then it may have looked different. If I recreate the poster, it will reflect my school population more, but as it stands, I could only work with the student population that I had at the time.
