The Pocket Chart is ESSENTIAL in K in my opinion! I LOVE it! Construct the sentences together teaching essential early reading strategies such as number of words and letter, 1-1 matching, spacing, rereading, looking at the first letter (highlight this with tape or pocket chart highlighter strips!), punctuation, and CROSS-CHECKING the FIRST LETTER with the picture! After whole group instruction - put it in your pocket chart center/station for independent reassembly. Also, check out my accompanying book. Use the book for whole group shared read, GR and then for independent and partner reading! THEN use the pocket chart strips in whole group to model reassembly and proceed to independent practice in pocket chart center. SO FUN!
