Ten Pin Linky Party: Reading!!!

I love Pinterest and spend far too much time there.  It is just so addicting!  I am amazed at the wonderful ideas that I find, and for Ashley's Ten Pin Linky Party, the reading ideas on Pinterest are not disappointing.  There are so many wonderful ideas! Be sure to check out everyone who linked up with Just Reed.

Here are my 10 favorite reading idea pins: 
1. I love all of the anchor charts on Pinterest, and this Author's Purpose chart is great!
Author's Purpose:  Easy as P.I.E.!    Persuade, Inform, & Entertain

2.  I love this character traits bulletin board!

3.  I love Patricia Polacco's books, and I love this great anchor chart.
  Picture books aren't just for little kids! For a quick analysis of author's purpose and theme, read a new story everyday for a week. Patricia Polacco is one of my favorites, but this could be done with any author.

4.  These bookmarks are super cute and would be great to make for the class.

5. This author spotlight bulletin board is great for motivating students to read!  I want to make one this year!

Author Study-I love the idea of always keeping an active author study.. There are so many great authors that I would love to introduce my kids to! These are great to set up after a read aloud so students can see more of the author's writings. {Image only}
6.  This is a fun activity that I do in my classroom to help students understand nonfiction text features.

Enjoy Pinterest and be blessed!



  1. I am loving seeing all the different ideas being shared with these posts. I really like all the bulletin board ideas.

  2. Lots of great ideas if only I get things done on my to-do list instead of adding more really cute things to it. :)
