PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you need reading strategies cards for your Reader’s Workshop board? As I implemented the CAFÉ model and made it my own, I created cards with crisp, easy-to-read fonts and colorful, attractive clip art to help my students remember our mini-lessons. This product will save you loads of planning and prep time, while also helping your students remember the strategies with the use of visuals and kinesthetic cues!

While this product was inspired by the CAFÉ model for Reader’s Workshop, it includes my personal interpretations of several research-based reading strategies. For more information regarding the Two Sisters’ resources for the Daily 5, please visit their site at The Daily Cafe

This comprehensive pack includes:

★ 2 Sets of Strategy Cards for comprehension, accuracy, fluency and expanding vocabulary. One set has the CCSS listed, the other set is plain

“Teacher Talk” Scripts- my teaching notes for introducing each strategy

★ 3 Sets of Header Posters for the CAFÉ model

♦Please check out the preview for a closer look!

In my scripts, I have explained how I connect the strategy to the visuals on the card in order to help students remember better. I have also included what I may actually say during my lesson only to help you with ideas.

There are duplicate slides to accommodate both American and British spellings, as well as duplicate slides with different wordings/images to better match your preferences.
