Using beanie babies to help students learn & internalize decoding strategy is powerful way to deliver instruction. My students of refer to "Chunky Monkey" or using their "Eagle Eye"s when talking about their reading.
Included are 8 vivid posters depicting a clip art of the beanie baby & the corresponding skill. These are striking posters which stand out in the classroom.
Lips the Fish - Get your lips ready
Chunky Monkey - Look for chunks within the word
Stretchy Snake - S-T-R-E-T-C-H out those sounds
Eagle Eye - Use the picture clues to help you
Flippy the Dolphin - Flip those vowel sounds!
Skippy the Frog - Skip it...Hop back & Read it, Read it!
Tryin- Lion - Try it again
Helpful Kangaroo - Ask for help
My students are find the strategy posters engaging & have really internalized the strategies. I hope you enjoy them in your classroom as well!
