This is a perfect addition to any polka dot/brightly colored classroom!
I use beanie babies to help students learn and use reading strategies. This set includes 16 posters containing a clip art of the beanie baby animal and a description for students of the comprehension/decoding reading strategy. The strategies included are:
Crabby Connector (make connections);
Chunky Money (chunk the words)
Digger the Dog (determine the important information);
Eagle Eye (look at the pictures)
Fix Up Bear (Monitor Comprehension)
Flippy Dolphin (Flip the Sound)
Helpful Kangaroo (ask for help)
Iggy the Iguana (infer as you read)
Lips the Fish (Get your lips ready)
Jabber Reteller (synthesize and retell);
Questioning Owl (ask questions as you read)
Rocky Raccoon (visualize)
Skippy Frog (Skip It)
Stretchy Snake (Stretch it Out)
Tryin Lion (Try it Again)
Spinner the Spider (Make Connections)
My students find the posters very informative, yet simple enough to be clear and not distracting.
These posters are the perfect addition to any classroom! Check out my store for more bright polka dot and chalk themed items!
