Reading workshop idea: laminate reading strategy cards and put them on binder rings for the kids to use. If you want a child to focus on a particular strategy, use a dry erase marker to star that card. You can erase it and write it on a different card once the child is using that strategy consistently!

Back to school activity-use the overhead to create a silhouette or trace and fill with things that make you special or you like. These could be cool to keep posted in the after school center. Or you can have them do their names in bubble letters, decorate the inside with designs.
