Great for teaching syllables!! Lego Syllable Counting Activity from "This Reading Mama" (In order for it to serve my phonemic awareness needs, I'd include a picture along with the printed word.)
Lego Syllable Counting Activity (from This Reading Mama) - That's a great idea!
Lego Syllable Counting Activity (from This Reading Mama) This activity is directed toward practice counting the amount of syllables in any word. For each syllable a lego in placed on the sheet. For example, the word bed has one syllable so it gets one lego. The word computer has three syllables so it receives three legos. This is a great hands on way to learn to count syllables. -Alexis Munoz

Summarization Strategy called "the incredible shrinking notes". Students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card. Students are then given the medium sized card and have to take the information from the large card and condense it onto the medium sized card. Finally, students are given the small card and must take the information from the medium sized card and condense it further onto the small card. Great way for students to get to the main point/idea!

Found on The Middle School Mouth blog.
Interactive Notebook Strategies. This summarization strategy is called "the incredible shrinking notes" where students start out writing a summary of a reading selection on the large index card.

Visual way for students to get to the main point/idea of a selection.
Goal Setting in the Classroom- love this. Students set smart goals, ones the can measure. I even set a goal and reflect on it too. Kids can check in on me and see how I'm achieving my goals as well.

I like this idea of having students create SMART goals each week. I could start off each week with introducing a unit and the students make a goal and stick it to a grid like this one. Then at the end of the week students can go check to see if they met their goals. I would change this so that the student's goals would be underneath the paper so that not every student can see all the other goals. This would hopefully make students make more personalized goals.
Goal Setting in the Classroom- love this. Students set smart goals, ones the can measure. I even set a goal and reflect on it too. Kids can check in on me and see how I'm achieving my goals as well. This is great for 21st century literacy because it is a way to set goals for anything, this would be great if everyone could set one goal based on each one of the literacies!
