Excellent Reading Board idea... (On top or beside my "window"? Do Author Study, Genre, Teaching Point? Don't have a color printer at school, might just mount 3 small white boards and write in colorful expo pen each week...)
This is a story tower where children illustrate the title on one card, the setting, author's purpose, beginning, middle, end... whatever! They write sentences or a paragraph on the back. Then they build it...This can be each child doing one card to build a group story tower or each child can make their own.
