Go-To Items for Anchor Charts
The chart tablet is PERFECT for Anchor Charts and I would stay stocked up with colored tape. It's so easy to tape a border around your anchor chart to finish it off. And...you can't just create an anchor chart with any old marker. I loved these!
My Favorite Wordless Picture Books
If you've read my post about inferring, you know that I like to use Wordless Picture Books to introduce and practice the process of inferring while reading. I know that Hugo is not a wordless picture book, but I couldn't leave it out...it's mesmerizing. :) It's a story told through a combination of words and fascinating illustrations. Great for older students.
Some Favorite Read Alouds
These are some of my Go To Read Alouds that students have loved! These are not ALL of my favorites, just some favorites of my 4th and 5th graders over the years
Here at Literacy Treasures, I LOVE to talk about reading and writing and share with teachers all that I've learned about what it takes to build strong readers and writers. I have immersed myself in the research of Lucy Calkins, Jennifer Serravallo, Stephanie Harvey, Debbie Miller, Carl Anderson, Gay Su Pinnell, Irene Fountas and so many others. Every resource, strategy, tool, minilesson and teaching tip that is shared on Literacy Treasures is rooted in this research
