Sun Scholars: For the Kids Friday #5
I love these posters for helping kids learn decoding strategies. Each strategy (chunking, stretching out the word, skipping the word and using the rest of the sentence to figure it out, etc) is associated with a cute little animal to help students remember the strategy. There is also a bookmark to download with just the animals to cue kids as they read. Great resource!

First Grade Factory: Word Attack Strategies, take 2
This is one of my FAVORITE classroom management tools!! It can be soooo time consuming to answer the questions...Can we use markers? Do we turn this in? Is this a talking activity? I love using these assignment choice signs to answer those questions without me doing the work. Once I give directions for an activity, I quickly place checks and X's by the cards and my students know exactly where to look for the answer.

Reading Strategies Poster. Teaching students these strategies can help them gain meaning and become fluent readers. Knowing these strategies will also help eliminate students getting frustrated and focusing on a single word they do not know.
