I use the reading strategy posters created by "Growing Firsties". My students love the animals and use them all the time when trying to figure out new words. There were 2 areas my students were still struggling in, so I created "telescoping giraffe & listening elephant". Telescoping giraffe reminds them to look through to the end of the word and listening elephant reminds them to listen to themselves read to make sure what they are saying makes sense. I would love to hear feedback!
