After finally getting this apron made up and into my hands, I was able to start using it in my classroom to make sure they were teacher friendly and kid- approved! The students were taught the strategies as a whole group. Now I wear the apron during guided reading groups when focusing on a particular strategy. Sometimes students even ask to wear it when they are buddy reading! It is so sweet to see them using it to help a fellow classmate when they come to a tricky word!
I also have a 16 page file called Reading Strategy Worksheets. This file includes matching icons for a bulletin board display, 3 reading strategy worksheets, and a parent letter explaining the reading strategies for $4. Please note: the apron and file are sold separately since Teacher's Pay Teachers cannot combine tangible and digital items.
Here's a link to the file:
