I created this Big Reading Strategies Flower as a Display Board to be placed in the classroom. I printed the Big Reading Strategies Flower on colored paper and created a stem with green paper. Then I laminated the flower and ÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½VelcroedÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½ it up individually on the display board. While teaching each reading strategy as a whole group, I take a petal off the display board and bring it down to the rug with the children. I find a big book that lends itself well to each particular reading strategy and I use sticky notes or post-it tape to cover up text. For example; when teaching the strategy, "Check the pictures for clues." I may cover up the word duck with a sticky note, model getting stuck on the word and looking at the picture for help. Included with the Big Reading Strategies Flower Display, is also a small portrait Reading Strategy Flower to copy and hand out to the students and parents.
This Big Reading Strategy Flower was made on a Mac with Pages as two separate documents, one landscape and the other portrait. You need both documents to create the complete Reading Strategies Flower.
