This pack consists of 38 beanie baby reading strategy cards with a polka dot background.
I introduced beanie baby strategies to my firsties a few years ago and have found that they really help my kiddos remember the strategies. I introduce each strategy with the help of a beanie baby, which along with the strategy card, helps to anchor our learning in a visual and concrete way.
I have included:
Fluency: 7 strategy cards
Decoding: 9 strategy cards
Comprehension: 15 strategy cards
Building Vocabulary: 7 strategy cards
These can be used in conjunction with a CAFE board, although this is not essential and can certainly be used without one. However, if you would like coordinating CAFE headings, these are available in my store for free here.
In addition, I have included small card versions of each strategy. These can be put on a plastic ring to place at your guided reading table. You could also give students copies of the strategies they are focusing on to put in their book boxes.
I also have a free decoding strategy bookmark, that uses the same characters as the cards in this pack here.
