4 pages of strategies and tips on how to use the "Gumball Strategy" in your classroom.

We all know that children LOVE to read and be read to! The method described below gives them an opportunity to do both.

When your students are reading independently, have them hunt for spelling patterns that they are currently studying and prepare this THINKmark to share with the class.

The THINKmark includes a visually detailed script so your students can effectively share their learning with their classmates. You will be amazed at how independent your students will be as they run Share Time without you!

This strategy gives each child in your class an opportunity to “teach” their peers, read to the class and learn from one another!

This is especially powerful if you are managing differentiated Word Study groups such as Words Their Way. Your students will be exposed to a variety of phonics rules as they listen for spelling patterns presented by their peers!

I do hope you enjoy using this THINKmark strategy with your students as much as my kiddos LOVE going on word hunts!
