Your HAND is so HANDY! This simple yet versatile framework will provide learners with a lifelong, multi-sensory tool to use for sharing, explaining, and remembering. Instructors can incorporate it into written expression, verbal discussion, and reading comprehension. This is the first thing that I teach in my practice, and I use it regularly so that students internalize this essential narrative structure that supports comprehension, memory, and idea generation. It's one thing that I hope they leave knowing because they can use it forever - so handy! This freebie includes teacher tips, print outs that can be used a poster, a fill-in exercise, mini version to keep at the desk, and writing activities. (And introduces some cute characters from the Vowel Pattern Pals series!) Have fun with the Handy Hand!
