Reading Ideas ~ Ten Pin Linky!

I'm linking up with Just Reed's Favorite Pinterest Pins Linky. This week's topic is Reading Idea Pins! I just love this linky! So much fun checking out (and pinning) new pins!

This is one we are going to be using in just a few weeks as we begin reading workshop....

This is just adorable! "Follow the Yellow Brick Road" retelling activity! I am really looking forward to using this in the fall!

And while we're talking about about a shadow puppet theater for retelling?! This is brilliant, people! Can you imagine how motivated your kiddos will be to do this?!

Another super cute retelling activity...
After reading, kiddos create apps related to setting, characters, events, and problem/solution. How cute is this?!

Another super fun retelling activity...Act it out!

One thing I really want to work on this year is Partner Reading (already do that) and Buddy Talk (have a hard time with that one!). I really like these ideas for supporting kiddos in book discussions. It's gotta be taught folks! (Of course, you already know that!)

I LoVe, lOvE, LOVE this story structure board/anchor chart! I love how it clearly shows what story structure IS!

And -- check out how plainly this anchor chart sets out Inferencing! LoVe it!!

Make sure you click over to Just Reed and check out everyone else's reading idea pins. Like I said.....a perfect opportunity to find MORE PINS!
