If you download for free, I'd REALLY appreciate it if you follow my blog, and follow me on TpT. I'd love a little love note because well, it makes me happy to hear from my blog friends.
Basically, I have these scaffolds at the ready when I'm conferring with kids during reading. I've found that a lot of my pumpkins have a hard time articulating what they are trying to say- so I create little prompting bookmarks to support them when they are reading independently or in partnerships. Check them out!
If you use these...here is the first page of this download.
Scaffolds: Prompts To Get Them Talking
A few things:
1. Not all of my students use or need these.
2. These go in their book baggies for as long as they need them. When they’ve got the “hang” of the skill, these are designed to fade out.
3. These are NOT passed out all out one time. As we study
comprehension strategies, I slowly roll them out during
All of these bookmarks are made into teaching charts before they are EVER handed out as a scaffold– the part I stress over and over is the idea that when they see a blank, that means they TALK! The students are very familiar with the prompts before they ever get their own personal copy.
Also, I finally revamped my life blog that I started right before I got married (and neglected thereafter) and I'm pretty proud! Check it out, I'd love a few followers over there!!! I will need lots of advise on my new house decor and gardening tips!
