Couch Work = Reading {{GOODIES}}

There is nothing better than rainy, dreary days so you can just sit on the couch and play on the computer, read books, surf Pinterest, catch up on crafts, and EAT. Yea, that's what today has been like.  

Here's a little of what I've been up to:

I cleaned up and added a few things to my Story Activities unit.  I will use the Buddy Reading spinners for my Reading Station and for buddy reading.  We have buddies (another grade level) come read with us and this will be a great way to lead a discussion with them about what was just read.

How about a travel brochure for the setting of your book??

The kids LOVE the idea of creating a travel brochure all about the setting of their story.  They are so creative and very convincing.  You can pick these up and others at my tpt store.

I wanted to make something for my kids to practice main idea and details.  This is a struggle for some of them and the more they do it the better they will be....right?!  I made these to work on in stations, with a buddy and in small group instruction.

The kids will need to find the right roof with correct main idea.  Then they will need to find the shrub, window, and chimney with the details.  Just another way to practice. 😜 You can pick this up here.

...and since we've been doing a little reading cleaning, I decided to clean up My Sticky Recall.  These were some activities that I made while working on my masters.  

Use the cards below to make necklaces for the kiddos to wear.  The teacher gets to interview the characters from the story.  This would be great to do after learning about character traits.

The student/teacher could use the question cards provided to ask the student/characters questions.  This is a great way for students to really think about what they are reading and respond from the character's point of view.  You can get all of this here.

Well, I think that it's time for me to move from the couch...😏.
