As someone who does guided reading and intervention groups all day long, let's just say that sometimes I need to add a little excitement to my life (and my little friends' lives) so that we all do not get bored. One of the simplest ways to do this: CHART PAPER and MARKERS! ...I'm not yelling at you, I'm just emphasizing this... :) Chart paper and markers are things that do not require a lot of extra prep but can go a really long way to help get your friends super engaged in a lesson!
These are nothing fancy (which is my point- no real prep required...but still SO exciting for my friends!)...but here are some examples of reading response and vocabulary charts my friends have been doing. And i'm telling you- they LOVE getting to use the chart paper, markers, crayons, etc!
Thanks to Teaching Super Power and Jen Jones for the graphics and fonts!
Have a great day!
