I've been away from work for almost 2 weeks with Greysen. He has almost healed from his tonsillectomy and thank goodness our days in the hospital are behind us. I go back to work tomorrow and I know that it will be a hard transition for him, especially because he still has pain from surgery. He's napping now, so thought I'd post something I had been meaning to post for awhile now.
I saw a Reading strategy anchor chart on Pinterest awhile back. She used the acronym- UNREAL to teach students her reading strategy steps. Check hers out here. It only linked to an image, so I'm not quite sure of where it originated. I liked it and thought it could be modified a bit for my own classroom/grade level. My grade level preferred to go with the acronym REAL with a couple extra R's at the beginning instead of UNREAL. This is what I finally came up with.
