Reading Center Starter Kit!!!!!

Happy Sunday, sweet friends!!!
I'm BEYOND excited {hence all the !!!}!  Why??!
I *finally* put together a reading center starter kit!!!!  It's been in my head ever since I made my writing center starter kit almost one year ago!  With a little push from a friend, I got to work on it... and I LOVE the result!

This kit can be created on a portable, tri-fold board to save space:

Or you can make a bulletin board reference wall:

Or why not a binder reference?!  Just slip the posters into sheet protectors, pop 'em in a binder, and set it out for kiddos to grab when needed!

Here's a close-up of four of the *18* strategy & skills posters included:
Topics:
visualize, reread, question, summarize, make connections, predictions, inferences, prior knowledge, main idea & details, retell, compare & contrast, cause & effect, classify & categorize, fantasy vs. reality, sequence of events, drawing conclusions, illustrations, character & setting

I also included graphic organizers for each of the 18 posters!  Some posters/skills have more than one worksheet option.  Here are a few:

I hope you're as excited about this one as I am!!
To grab your pack, or to learn more, head to my  TpT shop!!
If you DL the preview, you can get a great look at what's included!

I'd LOVE to hear what you think!!

** Thanks for pinning, Facebook friends!!
Winners have been announced & emailed :) **

Also, we have a Mother's Day Giveaway winner!
Congrats!

This looks amazing!! We have your writing version and will have to get the reading version for next year! We love using the tri-fold board so it is easy to manage and portable. It would be great to have to recall past reading strategies taught at any time!

Mrs. M said...

This looks absolutely amazing & super cute. I love the polka dots & cute graphics, very visually appealing. I love that you've included a graphic organizer to go with each poster, very handy for them to have an activity to go with each poster, as they learn the skill, great connection. You're hard work really shows!
