3. Create a poem/song center.

4. Make large charts for shared reading, using the colorful pictures on the last pages of the file to glue onto chart paper.

6. Find word wall words.

7. Use for reading fluency practice.

8. Send home for extra practice.

9. Note: Punctuation is sentence style, so capital letters are only used when a new sentence begins. It has been my experience that this helps students to realize that when they are writing, each line does not need to begin with a capital letter… just each new sentence.
