I love Jennifer Serravallo's Reading Strategies book. I reference it often when deciding on mini lessons to teach during reading workshop. I know that purposeful explicit instruction is what will move readers. Visual anchor charts with step by step directions will help students cement their learning.
This product was created to teach the emergent reading strategy: I can name how a character is feeling
I have included an anchor chart. The anchor chart can be either projected or turned into a poster if your district is lucky enough to have a poster maker.
I have also included 6 close up character pictures where students have to name the feeling of the character. These can be used with students in a whole group or small group setting.
Finally, I included "feeling sticks" for you to make students. I run copies, laminate, and velcro them onto craft sticks. Students use them to discuss how characters are feeling. My kiddos love anything hands-on that will help them remember the strategy taught.
After, we have spent a week practicing each emergent reading strategy, I put a copy of it in each student's reading binder. When I am conferencing with students individually or working with students in a small group, I like to have the reading strategies at my fingertips. I want to be able to reference my teaching points with each student as effectively and efficiently as possible.
