Responding to Reading- Interactive Poster
This just arrived from Vistaprint and I couldn't be happier!
Now, I can't remember which blog I saw this on, but someone else used VP to make an interactive "Respond to Reading" poster which is what inspired me. So, sorry I can't give you a shoutout, mystery Vistaprint inspiration!
Anywho... this is the large poster (which wasn't free, but still inexpensive!). So I made the file in Publisher, saved as a PDF, uploaded, cropped, and... there you have it!
So, now it's laminated so I can write a question at the top (that is me, learning how to write in D'Nealian... yikes! I have some practicing to do!) and students will respond by taking a sticky note (inside the bucket hanging on the knob), writing their answer, and sticking it on the spot that corresponds with their student number. The first question is an easy one, but I plan to do lots of higher level comprehension questioning with this one.
I do have four classes of 3rd graders I'll be seeing for reading... I'm thinking I'll mainly use this for my homeroom group more than I will the other three groups... but it would be a GREAT quick "exit slip" type of thing or way for students to be held accountable during read to self time as they could answer a question or write a way they've been using our comprehension skills in their reading.
I'm pretty geeked about this one! I even got my first ever message from Vistaprint that my image may be too distorted when blown up to this size, but I decided to order it anyway and it looks great!
Don't forget to enter the giveaway for 5 sheets of personalized stickers! It ends tomorrow... just check out yesterday's blog post!
Happy Saturday, peeps!
