Made It Monday

I am linking up a day early with 4th Grade Frolics for my favorite weekly linky! After this week is it turning into a monthly linky for the school year.  I have two Made it Monday items that I created this week.  The first one is a freebie :)

Before Reading Activity Menu 

This four page freebie is a great addition to reading centers or Daily 5 activities. There are three different before reading menus with 9 activities on each card.  Click here for this freebie. 

Common Core: Text Dependent Question Prompts

The Common Core standards focus on students’ ability to read closely to determine what a text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it.

Rather than asking students questions about their prior knowledge or experience, the standards expect students to respond to questions that can only be answered by referring explicitly back to the text in front of them. This resource contains 16 text dependent questions. It can be used as a center or for small groups.

Back to School

I have been slowly getting my new classroom in order.  It's hard to get started when you have a blank slate, but also leaves room for a lot of imagination.  So far I've done a couple of bulletin boards and a lot of organizing.  Here's what I have so far...
