Hi there, it's Whitney from The Crazy Schoolteacher. I recently found out that I will be making the move from first to third this fall and oh my word I am SO EXCITED. I love teaching first grade, but it was time from a change. I'm looking forward to doing more project based learning with kiddos who know how to zip up their jacket and tie their shoes...hopefully! :)
In preparation for the big move I began talking to other teachers in my building. One thing they all told me is the importance of reading, comprehension and higher-level of thinking. This isn't any different from first grade, but as I began moving from a first grade mindset to a third grade mindset I created a list of questions I want my kiddos to be answering after they read. I created these mini posters to post in my classroom library. Oh, did I mention that these posters are in my store as a FREEBIE right now?
I plan on using these posters to give assignments. For example, choose 3 questions to respond to in your reading journal. No worksheets. The questions are already printed and on the wall. Easy peasy lemon squeezy...wait, will third graders still think I'm funny? #teacherproblems
