Your Classroom and Student Helper
Many of you are working with text features in Common Core. I have found a series of signs that I am using in the media center to highlight these features and I have books from our collection that demonstrate their use.
I have also pulled additional titles that illustrate these features. Students in grades 1-2 will be given these titles and asked to locate specific text features. If you would like to have this set of signs for your classroom they are an Adobe document located on the shared drive, S:\Media Center\text feature signs.
You are also welcome to use the SmartBoard materials that I have in this location on the shared drive, S:\Media Center\Common core. I created this SmartBoard lesson to work with teachers at Lake Murray. We collaborated on this lesson and I would be glad to engage in a team collaboration with some of you. Let me know if you would like to have me attend a grade level planning time. We could set up a time for your class to come to the library media center and we could work together with your class. Within this folder is a word document that provides a link to a YouTube video and a different set of text feature signs.
Upcoming Book Awards
I am displaying books in genre categories. Presently I have Fantasy and Realistic Fiction on display in the fiction and everybody sections of the media center. I have the signs that I used stored in this location S:\Media Center\Genre posters. You are welcome to use these.
