I truly appreciate you taking the time to view my product! This download consists of all of the strategies and characters that I use to teach my kids to work through a passage. It’s all of my thoughts and tricks put down on paper. I have always done all of these strategies at one point or other throughout my years of teaching, but when I put all of these strategies together and came up with characters and an accountability system to go with them, I really saw a change in my students' work ethic in class and in their grades as well.
My class truly loves these characters, takes ownership of them, and remembers them when working through a passage. I hope your class loves it as much as mine.
This is a combo pack of 2 different items. It includes:
1. The BIPLA monster strategy system for teaching students to dig down deep when reading any passage and answering questions about that passage.
*This includes the Mr. Barebones strategy.
2. The Passage Tracker system that helps students track their grades on their completed passages and take responsibility for their own grades and work.
This download includes the following:
-2 posters of Mr. Barebones
-A note from Mr. Barebones to your class explaining how to use the bare bone sentence (summary sentence) strategy.
-A SPIBLA the Strategy Monster poster
-A letter from SPIBLA to your class introducing himself and explaining how he can help them on reading passages.
-3 different SPIBLA scaffolding strategy posters.
-2 different posters for each individual SPIBLA strategy. One with the strategy and the other with detailed steps of how to do that strategy. Also included with the “L” strategy poster is a poster that lists all of the different question types that a test could ask (at least in Texas, that is). (:
-2 different passage trackers. One is a “STAAR” theme for my fellow Texas teachers and the other one is a pencil and paper themed one.
-3 different types of student awards with two different themes to match the passage tracker themes. My students love to be rewarded when their grades start to go up.
Thank you for looking! (:
