The Art Lesson Close-Read 

I’ve always had a soft spot for Tomie dePaola books and The Art Lesson is a great little autobiography to share with your class.

Here are the retelling cards we use.  We have found that students can start practicing retelling with text details very early in the year.  This takes the act of listening to a story from a passive activity to an interactive activity (pssst… students love this!

You know how much I love poetry!

One activity students really love is listening to poems again and again.  If they can sing it, they soon will be able to read it!

So I created a songbook that has all of the poems for the entire year.  THEN I added a QR code.
