Poetry Station and Shared Reading Giveaway

As I started to look at my district curriculum and all that I had to teach and to consider in teaching more focused mini-lessons, I realized I needed to make the most of each lesson. In my search for the best resources, I found Deedee Will's Poetry Station and Shared Reading Set. With one unit I was able to find lessons that covered three of the four CAFE categories (accuracy, fluency, and expand vocabulary). Deedee's unit has everything already planned out for me and all of the resources needed are provided as part of the unit. Each lesson allows me to cover most of the TEKS and strategies I need to cover in a focused and short amount of time. Once we have worked through the weekly lessons with each poem I am going to move the sort activities to word work and the poems to read to self.
No matter whether you are doing daily five, CAFE, traditional literacy centers, or whole group lessons Deedee's poetry and shared reading unit is worth far more than it costs. I am so excited because it is high quality materials, engaging for my students, and so easy to follow and use. I am going to use it in whole group and small group instruction as well as in word work and read to self.

I am even more excited that Deedee has agreed to allow me to give away a copy of the complete set of Poetry Stations and Shared Reading. Yah!! Thanks Deedee!!

All you have to do to enter is:
1) follow my blog Chalk Talk
2) follow Deedee's blog Mrs. Wills Kindergarten
Leave a comment(s) saying you follow our blogs.
The giveaway ends at midnight Saturday, August 31st at midnight.
The winner will be announced Sunday September 1st.
