Using Folders in Literacy

At our school, we have been limited on the amount of copies that can be made for each class during a monthly period. I began thinking about what we could do to help cut down on paper. I came up with this great idea to create graphic organizers on folders. We laminated the folders and now the students can write on them with Vis-A-Vis markers. We use these when we begin a basal story. The students are allowed to collaborate and put their ideas down on the folder. We then allow each group to…

Having students analyze the news is a great way to keep them informed as well as build real world reading skills. After a thorough reading of the article students will be asked to write out the following: - WHO is the article about? - WHEN did this event/issue happen? - WHAT are four important facts you found? - WHERE is this event/issue happening? - WHY is this event/issue important? - To review students are asked to construct a relevant based on the article.

Who remembers making cootie-catchers as a young student with varying colors, numbers, and fortunes on the inside? Spelling out green, then counting to 5, then to 3, only to read the silly or perhaps outrageous fortune on the inside (aka, YES, your secret crush did return your sentiments!!) and drumroll please for a group of friends shrieking in delight.

Making Inferences - Ashleigh's Education Journey

One of my favorite ways to introduce making inferences is through wordless picture books. They are a great first step toward this challenging skill, because it’s something students do on a daily basis.
