First, I have two brand new walkers in my house…yikes! Commence even more baby-proofing! I was also a guest blogger on Comprehension Connection this past Wednesday. (In between installing even more safety latches BTW!) I wrote about applying multisensory strategies in the classroom from an OG perspective., and Carla wrote about 6 traits writing on my blog. If you haven’t had a chance to see my post on Carla’s blog, here’s the link:
This week I posted a newly created product featuring 7 of my favorite tried and true graphic organizers to use with any Non-Fiction text. It’s called Owl-Ways Thinking. The ABC summarizer is my own twist on Alphaboxes. I’ve used it to jot down important words as we read, but THEN we used the organizer to write a summary. The challenge is to use as many words as you can from the organizer in your summary. My students loved it, and I even incorporated it into our Social Studies Interactive Notebook nicely. A summary scaffold is included in this pack. Each organizer also comes with a short lesson plan and a few tips from me. Here’s a little preview and the link:
And now…For my second Friday freebie for October! Woot! Woot! This week I created a BINGO game for counting syllables, using October themed words. I loved creating it so much, I’m going to do one for each month. Don’t forget about last week’s freebie too. It’s a word sort with word families -ind, -ild, -old, and -ost. It’s great for stations, a small group activity, and for all you OGers out there. These freebies will only be free in October, so please take advantage. Here’s a peek and the link:
Note: A list of October themed words is included in this freebie.
