A Few Back to School items and a freebie!

Although we still have a few weeks (4 to be exact) before we have to go back to work, we are beginning to create some beginning of the year activities to do with our first graders. We've got a big giveaway in the works with some of our blogger friends, so make sure to be on the look out! We're going to be busy these next few weeks as we prepare to go back to school, so hang on tight!

We've got a few things to share with ya'll today. First is our new All About Numbers Pack at TpT. This is very similar to our All About the Alphabet pack. Our number pack has a focus on numbers instead, counting and recognizing numbers from 0 to 20. Click the Picture below to check it out!


We've also added a new Reading Strategies Poster Pack to our store. We've seen many versions of these floating around, but have never found one that worked just perfectly for us. We wanted one that included all of the decoding and comprehension strategies, and that looks neat and clean, with a real focus on the strategy. We've used these with our students for the last 2 years, and it really is AMAZING how quickly they pick these up. They love having the bookmark in their book boxes, and are able to tell you which strategies they are using. They are just fabulous! So, check out our version of our posters. We hope you find them useful. Comment on this post with a way that you use or could use these in your classroom, and tomorrow we'll pick a winner to get these for free!


And since we love all of our fabulous followers, here's a treat for you! This is an All About Me book that we do at the beginning of the year. This 8 page book can simply be cut on the dotted lines and is aligned more to the right so you can easily staple the left side without covering up the pictures and words (this was a problem with the one we used last year, so we created our own) Click the picture below to download your free copy!


Happy Monday! Don't forget to leave us a comment for a chance to win our Reading Strategies Poster Pack!

  2. I love including a bookmark with reading comprehension strategies too. On the other side, I copy our Daily 5 options so that students can mark off their choices for Daily 5.

  4. HI! I've just found your site & am so excited about the great resources you have made! The Reading Strategy posters would be a great addition to my Guided Reading groups, and I love the bookmark idea. I am always asking my students to identify the strategy they are using, and the bookmarks will be a great visual reference for them (and me!). I can't wait to share this with my team :)

    Also thanks for the "All About Me" book - I have already included it in my lesson plans for the first few days. I WISH we had four weeks..we go back next week (yikes!) .

  5. I really LOVE your reading strategies posters! I'm going to use them in small group and whole group reading. I also pan to add the bookmark to their reading boxes that includes their journals, self selected books, and other reading artifacts. Thanks for the All About Me booklet too : )

  6. I love your Reading Strategies posters! I don't feel like I've done very well explicitly teaching all of these strategies to my first graders in the past but plan to do a better job this year! I love the bookmarks and parent letter, too. They will really help to reinforce the strategies and make them easy for the kids to practice.

  7. Love love love it! I think I would use the strategy posters in my small group instruction and as part of their reading bags that go home each week. It would be a great way to link what we are talking about in the classroom with reading at home!

  11. I love the posters! I would use them first during whole group. After my students understand the decoding strategies, I can use the comprehension poster the same way. Then I can put the book marks in their book boxes so they can refer to them while reading independently.
