According to Common Core Standards, children need to be able to: "read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension." (RF.1.4 & RF.2.3)
This packet contains materials to be used in your classroom as well as handouts for parents. I make these handouts part of my Back to School packet each year. The parents really appreciate understanding the strategies we use in school so that they may follow through at home.
I noticed a big change in the way the children hold on to the strategies since I've used the animal posters. I keep them hanging on my window behind where I hold my guided reading groups. This way, I am able to make immediate connections to the strategies as needed during group reading. The posters serve as a constant reminder to the children that readers use good strategies as they read.
In this packet, you will find:
1. Reading Strategies poster/handout
2. Comprehension Strategies poster/handout
3. "Read to Me" parent handout
4. Reading Strategies Animal Posters
5. Reading Strategies Animal Posters description cards
