PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a lesson on how headers and sub-headers help prepare our brains when reading non-fiction text. Sample anchor chart ideas are provided for teacher modeling, and mini-charts are provided as scaffolds for students to record their own thinking. This lesson helps to connect reading and writing. With the writing scaffolds/sentence stem charts students glue into their Thoughtful Logs and respond to, teachers will have evidence of students' understanding of headers and sub-headers which is often hard to do in a reading workshop. I will be posting the rest of my non-fiction text feature lessons soon so stop back frequently! To see more 'action shots' of how this lesson was used in my classroom, please visit my classroom blog: http://lifein4b.blogspot.com/2011/10/loaded-with-literacy.html

Hi Leanne,
Love your website and teaching materials. I'm very interested in the papers you cut out for the children and have them paste in their notebooks --- the ones that have a picture of the mentor text and then the activity. Do you sell these? I'd like to purchase them. I think they can guide me and my students to better lessons and better outcomes. Thanks.

I wish I could tell you I have them available. I created many of those charts using the titles and skills that were listed in Linda Hoyt's Interactive Read Alouds Book (Grades 4-5). I actually have had SO many people, just like you, who have asked me for them - so many, that I actually contacted Linda Hoyt's publishing company to ask her more about finding a way to publishing them. Unfortunately, her publishing company responded, explaining that because I used titles/skills/language from her book, I would be breaking copyright infringement if I were to share them/sell them in any way. I was told I could use them in my classroom only. :( SUCH a bummer, because I agree they are EVERYTHING teachers need to be more successful with literacy instruction and inspire the 'writing about reading' that we want kids to be doing! If I come up with my own charts, I will certainly offer them on here! Thanks for your interest!
