About 2 weeks ago, one of my teammates found this super fab pack and I am obsessed! I only wish he had found it sooner, but I plan on using it from day numero uno next year. It is by This Little Piggy Reads (omgoodness such a cute name!) and you can find it in her TPT store HERE if you would like.

In addition to teaching these strategies (I call them non-negotiables because they MUST use them) we also use this gem from Laura Candler that is FREE! You can get your hands on it HERE!Laura Candler is amazing and my students love this activity. They enjoy it so much I really think they forget they are studying sometimes. This can be used for reading or math and she includes detailed instructions.
Now to leave you with a freebie... we have been working on capacity and building Gallon Robots but, I also taught my thirdsters about Capacity Kingdom and Gallon Castle because I think it will be much easier for them to sketch in their test booklet if they choose to do so. I made the colored graphic to hang in my classroom and the smaller ones they glued into their math journals.
Have a fantastic, restful weekend everyone. Toodles!
