You guys have been so kind! I have been reading through some of the nice things you have said about my little old blog... It simply warms my heart~Do I sound like I am 80 years old? Well, it is true (no, I'm not 80), your kind words really make me smile, so thank you!
My district set out to create a common language for word attack strategies that would move up the grade levels.. We looked at many resources and tried to pick the simplest, yet most explicit language to help our students. Why? Your whippy kids can handle switching their language up, "Sound out the word, tap the word out, stretch the word...". They all mean about the same thing, but your struggling readers think these are all different strategies.
I adapted these posters from several resources. We will use them in our building for our K-2 students. So, when they leave my classroom, their 1st grade teacher will use the same language, our Title 1 teachers will use the same language and so on.
Since I made them... I thought I would share them.
You can use the bookmarks to mark off the strategies you have taught (and they demonstrated).
I hope you find this helpful! If you grab a copy, I would appreciate your comments :-)
