I had so much fun during the last product swap that I just had to participate again. This time I have been partnered with Haley over at Following Optimism in 2nd Grade. I was so happy to be matched up with her since I was already following her blog.
I asked if I could review her Reading Graphic Organizers (Scaffolded).
We have been working on mapping story elements since the first day of school. When I saw the preview of her file, I knew this would be the perfect opportunity to give these graphic organizers a try. Here is her product description from TpT:
Scaffolded versions of graphic organizers to help with the gradual release method. Organizers include: Venn diagrams, story element charts (beginning, middle, and end, and problem/solution), vocabulary word work, and a questioning strategy organizer.
Included in the file are:
Since we are only a few weeks into the school year, I have not been able to use all of the graphic organizers with my kiddos yet. However, here are the ones we have been able to use:
Now, Haley has been such a fabulous partner, that she also sent me her newest math file that she is adding to her TpT store. It is called Picking Place Value. The kids are having a great time using it during math workshop, but I can’t post their pictures here since I don’t have permission to post their photos on my teaching blog. You’ll just have to imagine their happy little faces deeply engaged in learning 🙂
(putting the matches together and laying them down)
Students can practice speed sorts. Have the students shuffle and stack the cards into one pile. Students can race the clock to get the cards sorted before time is up. If the students are successful, lower the time allowed to sort and try again.
Now, here’s your chance to win your own FREE copy of my Math Mania pack. Just follow the directions on the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
