This freebie was inspired by one of my sweet former colleagues. Beth took pictures of her students doing the cross-checking hand motions, glued them onto chart paper and wrote out the steps. It was brilliant! So, of course, I took the idea and gave it my own computer-generated spin. I took pictures of four students sitting next to each other modeling each step of the cross-checking process, added them to my word-processing software, typed out the steps with cute fonts, and then hit print! This poster goes into the Read to Self and Read to Someone baskets in my centers. :) This is a nice visual reminder of how to cross check while reading since each motion matches with words. It's brain-friendly too!!!! :)
