Ditch the Worksheets = F.U.N. - Simply Skilled Teaching

Ditch the Worksheets = F.U.N.

READINGCOVER3-2

 

Hi Friends….
I hope this post finds you all well.  A few weeks ago I stayed after school {in my very quiet classroom….ahhh} and I started thinking about how I could add some more PIZZAZZ to my
Guided Reading Groups.
As part of our reading series {Pearson Reading Street}, we must teach a comprehension skill and strategy each week, which will also be revisited many times throughout the year.   I find myself sometimes using the same activity or worksheet to practice the comprehension skill because I have to revisit it many times throughout the year.  Which lead me on my QUEST for something a little different and new for my kiddos… I headed on over to Pinterest….of course.  But sometimes when I am on Pinterest, my ADD kicks in and 5 minutes later I am looking at ways to organize my kitchen cabinets…I digress.
So I decided to sit down and create something myself to ATTACK each Reading Comprehension skill I had to teach my little ones.  Then… the LIGHTBULB lit up in my brain!!!!!!  My kiddos have been LOVING and I mean LOVING my Writing Tab-Its that we use in our Work on Writing Center so I figured, let me create them for reading….. SOOOOOOOOOOO……
Reading Tab-Its was born!
This resource was a LABOR OF LOVE…I tell ya!  It took me weeks to finish it!  But it is DONE!
But I am excited to put them to use and add them to our
Interactive Notebooks!
This past week we worked on my Cause and Effect Tab-It
and my Plot Tab-It.  Honestly, my kiddos LOVED LOVED LOVED working in them.  I use them during my small group work time and it is a perfect way to address your comprehension skills that you must teach.

 

 

 

Here are a few pictures of my kiddos working on my Cause and Effect Tab-It this week….
