Welcome to my unshuttable Caboodle Box of literacy resources for k-6 students!
I wanted to create a place that was the sum of my best experiences with students using creative and engaging resources, the type that spark possibilities, questions, exploration, wonder, deep thinking, all of which are the natural dispositions of k-6 learners.
You’ll find lots of resources on this site that are ready for you and your students today, such as mini lessons, activities, tools and games. You’ll also discover sets of resources to help you craft strong literacy routines, such as Reading Journals, Book Chats, Quick Writes, and Spelling Explorations. Throughout the site you’ll notice my fondness for real texts for they are truly at the heart of enabling our students to join the literacy club.
But I didn’t create this site to show you what I could do; I wanted to show you what you could do, and most importantly what your students could do.
Now, off to the classroom! Sharon
This resource has been extremely useful and easy to use. Every time I have a reading conference with a child I use the toolkit because it is just so helpful. I specifically like the Flip Chart of Reading Conference Prompts. It gives me specific but varied questions to ask throughout every stage of the conference. This allows me to gain a great insight into the child’s thinking, understanding of the text and themselves as a reader and also their goals. It also means I can give really strong feedback making my reading conferences smooth and successful.
