coming soon: reading comprehension checks!


Here is a little sneak peak of my latest and greatest project:

READING COMPREHENSION CHECKS!
Since I am a new teacher, I am still trying to get the whole "guided reading" thing down. I am trying to hard to make a work for me and my little second graders. All I can say is... it is HARD! However, I can already see what a great difference the small group instruction makes to my low readers and that is motivating me to continue on and create helpful resources as I go.

This comprehension unit will supplement your small group instruction with useful worksheets and activities that can go along with any story or any reading level. I am already using some of them in my classroom and my students are learning the story elements (problem, solution, characters, plot, setting, etc) like the back of their hands! And... since this unit includes a variety of different activities, my students aren't getting sick of comprehension (btw... we work story comprehension e-v-e-r-y single day)! Story comprehension was something I struggled to teach my students during my first year of teaching; so this year I am determined to conquer it (good thing I get to try again with the same group of kiddos)! 

I will do my best to have this unit up by the end of the week... I just have so much more to add...
until then, I'm going to give you a chance to win this Helpful Comprehension Check Packet!

All you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment... EASY PEASY! :)

I will announce the winner when I finish and post this unit.

Ahh!! And how could I forget??? Happy Halloween!

  51. I love your blog and follow it. You are full of great, creative ideas which help me in my first year as a first grade teacher, although, I have taught for 16 years.

  59. Oh, I loved algebra within my college! That is more preferable than geometry or probability theory. For that solving my struggles using the latter issue I made use of https://academic-writing.help/ however i think this particular service works perfectly for algebra, too. So, why will not you look at this? Best of luck!
