This is an anchor chart for using during your Reading Workshop mini-lesson. The topic is "Bringing Books to Life". We use it with our Character Study Unit. The idea is to make it with your students, but still be able to use it year after year without having to continually recreate it.
Print out the pages. Cut out the title and graphics that go with the title. Glue them down to a short chart tablet and laminate. Laminate the other slides and cut them out. Attach Velcro to the backs of the words and graphics and where you will be attaching them to the chart tablet.
When you introduce each day the skill you want the kids to focus on, all you have to do is add it to the anchor chart. It is great if you have a switch class. You can just take off the skill that you taught that morning and re attach it for your afternoon class. This saves you a lot of time each year of creating the same anchor chart.
You can also use the small version of the anchor chart to show on the smart board or on a screen. This could stay up during their independent and partner reading time for you to use as midpoint teaching or to refer to as you are conferring.
