There are 44 strategy cards supporting the CAFÉ reading strategies by Gail Boushey and Joan Moser. The strategy is written in large, bold words, and include a picture/descriptor supporting the strategy.
BRAIN BASED RESEARCH indicates the brain is a pattern detector and, therefore, responds positively to color coding as it attempts to make use of new information.
These strategy cards were intentionally created to follow a layout and color-coding strategy. Each of the strategies (Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, Expand Vocabulary) has been given its own distinct color. These colors continue within the free headers that are also available in my store.
These cards can be used for either your CAFE menu or for an Objective board. They would also be great to help plan and organize your yearly scope and sequence. Just laminate the strategies and post each one after you have introduced it.
I have used clip art from Krista Wallden (Creative Clips). Included are both American spelling and British and Australian spelling of recognize/recognise.
