Making Meaning with Melissa


The Reading Signposts first introduced in Notice and Note are a great tool for teaching reading patterns. This freebie provides you with some tools I created to use in my own classroom, based on the Signposts.

Included you'll find:

  • A Signpost chart that combines several of the book's charts into one document.  It provides the signpost definition, clues to recognize it, the literary elements it reinforces, follow-up questions, and why the signpost matters.  And, even more importantly, it is sized to be cut and glued into a standard composition book!
  • A page of Signpost bookmarks.  I printed mine on Astrobright cardstock and cut them out.  I can't wait to give them to my students as we delve into the literature selections this year.
  • A graphic organizer/notes handout to give students as we read several short stories at the start of the year. This organizer provides guiding questions to help students understand the signposts.
