Over the years I have collected many resource books. Some I have used very little, but some I have worn out. I wanted to share one resource book that is looking very worn because it is one of my favorite resource books of all times: Using Picture Books to Teach Comprehension Strategies.
I love teaching with picture books, and this book has some wonderful ideas, lesson, and book lists for teaching comprehension strategies. To help my students with visualization, I shared the introduction in 13 Moons on a Turtle's Back with my class. I then gave each of my students a copy of one of the poems in the book. Each student then created drawings of the season described in his/her poem. We then attached these poems to an anchor chart.
I can quickly identify students who visualized well as they read, and I can also identify students who are struggling with visualization. This is just one of the many wonderful lessons in this book.
This packet includes 10 fall themed inspirational posters, 12 styles of buttons in 2 different sizes, and 1 PowerPoint of the inspirational posters.
Use the fall posters to decorate your classroom as well as motivate your students.
