I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
I went back and made the word helper signs into a single page (like Vanessa did) so that children can keep a copy at their seat with them or take them home for a reference. I also added 2 that Vanessa had - Buddy Bob and Elmer Elephant. I went back and made big word helper signs for Buddy Bob and Elmer Elephant too. Email me and I will send you the single sheet document as well as the 2 new big signs. I am still working on creating a book mark like document for students to keep in their books with them. Thanks Vanessa for sharing your reading strategy cards!
