Newspaper Fun Your Students Will Love

Good evening all!  How about liking Mr. Giso's Room to Read on facebook?  While you are at it, check out my fun-filled Newspaper Scavenger Hunt literacy center.  It's a quick and easy project to do to get ready for "Back to School" while enjoying the AC indoors.  Just add newspapers!  My students have loved this center for over a decade and so can yours.

Guided Reading Tool Freebie

Happy Monday friends!  I have just updated cloze activities, an at home interview project for a "Now and Long Ago" unit, a colorful noun sort, a "primary friendly" editing checklist and a simple work work mat.  Best of all, I have updated my TpT store's freebie.  Here's a picture.  Just click here to get it.  This tool is perfect for Guided Reading.  It allows your readers to interact with the text in a hands on manner.  It's perfect for them to use when articulating their thinking as readers.
