I found that once I put up my written CAFE strategy, my students forgot what it was. They couldn't read it!
So I started drawing my own illustrations for each strategy.
My students understood, used, and remembered the strategies from looking at the pictures.
Here are the first 15 pictures I painted for my kindergartners.
I post the pictures on my CAFE board right above the written strategy.
Just print and laminate.
Get your mouth ready to say the beginning sound
Retell the story through pictures
Predict and confirm with evidence
Recognize sight words
Point to the words
Understand the meaning of a period
Letters make words
Infer and support with evidence
Skip the word and then come back
Connect text to self
Flip the sound
Stretch the word out
Chunk letters and sounds
First, then, last
Guess a word that makes sense
Here is the best part, I will continue to add more strategy pictures and if you buy now, you will get all of the new strategy pictures FREE as I send each revised copy of this purchase. I will keep adding them over the summer.
If you purchase the strategies and need your picture a different size for your CAFE board, I can send you the picture on Microsoft Word so you can resize it.
Please do not use these pictures on any other merchandise to be sold on TPT.
