I've always known how important explicit strategy instruction was during my English Language Arts block and after seeing a friend use beanie babies as a fun way to teach strategies, I was hooked! Over the past years, I've read books such as CAFE and Reading With Meaning. This poster pack is a culmination of my experiences in teaching reading strategies for accuracy, comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary development. The fun characters appeal to young readers! If you're implementing CAFE, Daily 5 or guided reading, then these strategy posters are for you!
Included in this pack are 3 sizes of posters for the following reading strategies:
*Fix Up Bear Monitoring Strategy
*Digger the Dog for Big Idea and Main Idea
*Spinner the Spider for Story elements
*Rocky the Raccoon for Visualization
*Jabber the Reteller for Synthesizing
*Iggy the Iguana for Inferring
*Crabby the Connector
*Skippy Frog-Hop over the word
*Flippy Dolphin-Flip the sound
*Cross Checking Cheetah
*Auto the Otter--Sight Words
*Lips the Fish
*Eagle Eye--Check the picture
*Mark the Shark--Voracious Reader
*Expressive Eel--Reading with expression
*Helpful Kangaroo-Picking just right books
*Fancy Nancy--Finding interesting words
Also included in this pack are two Reading Strategy Coaching Menus. I use these during pair reading. One student acts as the coach while the other reads. They refer to the menu when they come to a tricky word. In addition, I've added bookmarks, too. These are great to send home, add to Take-Home Reader folders or give away as cute reading prizes!
Bring bright colorful visuals to your reading strategy instruction and make strategies fun and memorable with this pack!
