Think Aloud Cards {Freebie} for the First Grade Reading Wonders Program

If you are using the Reading Wonders program for first grade, I hope that you can find this freebie useful! I created the think aloud cards after learning that they are only available on the McGraw-Hill website.

I wanted something that I could have handy to refer back to with students as we were practicing the comprehension skills and strategies. So I printed mine 2 to a page so they are about a 1/2 sheet, laminated and cut apart and then put on a ring. I am fortunate to have a document camera in my classroom, so I can put the stack up on the TV for everyone to refer to during the read aloud. I especially use these during those read aloud cards. Please share how you use the think aloud cards in your classroom! Open the link below to grab the cards. Until again, I wish you well!

Things are Heading in the Right Direction!

Oh. My. Gosh! I have been working with a blog designer. I want this blog to be a cute place for me to run to, to escape the crying child, the laundry heap and the million other things that pull at me from the minute I walk in the door! So today, I got a sneak peek at the new design. It is fabulous! I can't wait to reveal!
