January Literacy Links


Mentor Texts

No snow here in Texas but the winter season has officially started. Check out these winter themed read alouds. All of these are available for checkout in the Guided Reading Room. :)

Grammar Matters

Grammar has become a huge focus for the district this year. Grammar needs to be explicitly taught and explored through the use of authentic literature. Below you will find fun and creative ideas that can be used as mini lessons or as stations.
