Getting students in the early grades to understand and identifywho/what the author and illustrator are is a major challenge. I began to use separate pages during writers workshop to clarifywhat we do when we are Mr./Miss Author/ , or Mr./Miss Illustrator.
Timeline cards to help students order dates between BCE/BC and CE/AD. Letter sized pages each with a date, description and full color photograph. Perfect for Montessori follow up after the 'cradle' story of Jesus
