I made this set of posters for my classroom as I found the holidays a perfect time to teach and spiral review fiction text elements: characters, setting, problem and solution, as well as responding to the text in a predictable way. At these times my students benefit from being engaged in meaningful learning activities that relate to the holiday.
I use the full page posters to review the elements. I post them on a bulletin board and add information from some of our texts under each heading. This helps students make connections between the texts.
I use the half page headers to create anchor charts for specific books.
The reading response pages are a great way to engage students in responding to what they have read and a chance to demonstrate their comprehension. The pages are the same for each set of posters so that students are comfortable with the format and expectations.
Included in this pack are 4 sets of fiction posters: Halloween, Christmas, Spring and Fairy Tale. Each set includes a color and b&w version. Each set includes 13 follow up worksheets.
