I decided to create a Story Snapshot pocket chart as a visual reminder for students of the key elements of the stories we're reading in class. I have incorporated the Ice-Cream Scoop Skills/Strategies that I posted a picture of earlier. I ran off an extra set to use in my pocket chart. I think it's so important to make connections as much as possible.The genre signs are the same signs I have hanging from my genre tree in my Book Nook. I LOVE them. They are so bright and colorful. I purchased them from Really Good Stuff. The images on the Theme signs I found on-line a long time ago and I'm still trying to locate the site because her posters are great. I will add a link if I happen to come across it. The themes included are- Be a Good Friend, Be Yourself, Kindness, Responsibility, Sharing, Teamwork, and Try New Things. At the bottom of the chart is my Making Words Station. I try to choose a word that connects to the story of the week. Each week I change out the letters and they use the form below.
