Got Caught Reading bulletin board. There is nothing better than seeing students sitting quietly and reading while in the library, why not snap those kids pictures and post on my bulletin board for everyone to see?!!! I love the camera frame around the picture too. Thanks Scholastic for sharing this idea! --- [however, i know plenty of middle school students who would be mortified to have a pic of them reading where others can see it.]

Did you know that placing a red dot in the middle of words can help children see the whole word? Try it for students who just look at the beginning of words and then guess.

For teaching sight words. Worth trying... Did you know that placing a red dot in the middle of words can help children see the whole word? Try it for students who just look at the beginning of words and then guess.
Hmmm.. Worth a try! I haven't researched this, but this teacher says: Thanks to brain specialist Fritz Mengert, I learned how to use a red dot in my reading instruction. Dr. Mengert told me that placing a red dot in the center of a word helps kids focus on the middle rather than just the beginning. Many of my students just looked at the beginnings of words and guessed at what they were, and the red dot was the answer I had been looking for. It worked! My students were much more able to distinguish between similar-looking words. Placing a red dot at the end of a line of text also improves reading fluency, he taught me, because it gives kids who have difficulty crossing the midline a focal point. With practice "reading to the dot," my kids learned to read all the way to the end of the line without stopping, and their fluency improved.
Never heard this-but worth trying: Brain research says placing a red dot in the center of a word helps kids focus on the middle rather than just the beginning ......and then guessing the word.
How to Teach Sight Words
Expanding sentences. Would love to do a foldable like this with grade-level revisions. 1. Add an adj/adv participial phrase. 2. Add a prepositional phrase. 3. Reorder/rearrange the sentence. 4. Improve the verb. 5. Include an appositive. 6. Write it as a compelling fragment. 7. Rewrite it as dialogue. 8. Change the point of view.

This is a great idea to show student how to expand sentences...She also has ideas to use for older students as well. | Note: I'd drop the lazy adverb -- how do you know the cat is happy? Is it flicking its tail, eyeing hungrily down fr its perch at a possible food item? (Show it, don't say it) -- but otherwise the advise seems solid (with the caveat, drop as many adverbs fr your prose as possible).
