There are so many great linky parties this summer! Today I'm linking up with Ashley for her amazing Ten Pin Linky Party!! This weeks topic is reading pins.
Here are my top 10 reading pins (in no particular order):
I love the idea of having the kids fill out a little book report & tape or glue it onto a brown bag filled with popcorn. The kids can eat their popcorn while they discuss their books. So cute! (Cara did it differently so click the picture to read about the original idea)
I have some students who can't read or who are stuck at level A or B for years. There are only so many level a and b books out there. Hailey from The Autism Tank made these books. The kids match the pictures (there is a small playground picture in a bag with the book).
I bought this book because someone recommended it to me. It is PERFECT for teaching predictions (for young kids). It's super cute. I will be reading this the first week of school for sure!
When I first read about this retell center, I fell in love! I already started planning mine...I'll be doing it a little differently so stay tuned for my post on it later (much later).
This is a book tasting...about 5 books are set on a platter. The kids browse the books then choose an appetizer. They get a total of 3 trays (appetizer, main dish, dessert). They fill out their order sheet of the 3 books they chose.
This is a freebie from Teaching to Inspire in 5th. It's simple but good! Go download it!
This is the lesson plan format I use for my reading groups. I love how fast they are to fill out and they are customized for each level. The amount of time this has saved me in lesson planning is unreal haha
In these inference bags, kids put an item of their choice and then write clues about the item without giving it away. The class needs to guess what is in each bag. Great way to make inferences!
I love these play-doh centers. My kids LOVE play-doh so these are perfect.
Reading with flashlights?! What kid wouldn't love this?
As I compiled this list, I realized that even though I look at my pin boards, I don't really take time to REALLY look...does that make sense? I overlooked a few of these pins while looking through my reading board to find my "Top Ten" pins so thank you to Ashley who "made" me look closer :)
*Also, My entire store will be on sale from July 4th-8th
