Reading Skills and Strategies

I was so inspired by Rachel Lynette from Minds in Bloom, who created an "Inference With Pictures" board that I expanded her idea to include the skills & strategies taught in our curriculum. I use these images (so many of them I shot myself) in my classroom as warm-up/morning work. Students see the image on the big screen, then complete the activity in their reading journals [ Lesson: http://bit.ly/1fndJH1 ]. Thank you to all who re-create & share this board and credit my name, it means a lot!

    I have to say - I've never figured out how to do Monitor & Fix-up with images until this week. I used my adorable guinea pigs - and they totally "got it". They knew that at first they misunderstood, but after looking more closely, they figured out what was really happening. It was an exciting process to see unfold in our classroom! Enjoy!!

    Great idea. I thought my kids got it, but it didn't show on the exam.;(

    Be careful loading this image in school, because it is surrounded with images that are not appropriate for the classroom.

    Good point, Hope. I've learned to just enlarge the pin, rather than to visit the site or board where the image came from.
