Let me start by saying that I get no credit for this idea. Mor over at A Teacher’s Treasure is totally the one to thank!
We have a thirty minute intervention reading block at my school each day. During that time nearly half of my class is gone to Title I and special education. That means I get to keep the rest of my little scholars and push them with other reading activities! 🙂
When school first started I knew I wanted to get them started on different novels, but we hadn’t done the official testing yet so I didn’t know exactly who were my Title I kiddos and who were not…
In a mild panic, I remembered that Mor had posted about these awhile ago. So I totally went over, printed out her freebie, and had my entire 30 minute block scheduled for six days! =)
Here are how our “thought bubble” posters turned out —
I love these and now we are referencing them during our literature circles and reading workshop! LOVE! Make sure to head over and check out Mor’s thought bubbles (which are even more adorable thanks to her student model!) and get your FREE list of what should be inside each bubble.
