RRJs Take Two!

What a WEEK!  We had Monday off for the fair (yay for country living!), yesterday we had a team building type of field trip, and today was the "Ag-Citing" fair day for 3rd graders in my county, so we loaded up in the buses and went to the fair!

We got to tour the animal barns and 4-H barns, eat lunch, and then break into smaller groups to explore the fair.  I'm EXHAUSTED but it was super fun!

Monday I posted about how we are using RRJs at my school to improve our reading comprehension and our writing and I got a TON of e-mails with questions and people wondering if I would offer my RRJ materials for sale.  So, I've tweaked them a bit to fit more classrooms than just mine and have put it up at TpT.  Just click the pic to learn more and download the preview.  It will be $4.00 until the end of the week!

You can download the preview file to see what is included... it's 40 pages of stuff to help you implement RRJs in your classroom!  I believe (and having taught it for two years, I am positive) that even first graders could do a modified version of this... even if they aren't keeping their own personal RRJ, the strategy pages would be great practice for printing off when studying different comprehension strategies.  The pack includes RRJ pages for students to practice summary, predicting, visualizing, text-to-self, text, and world connections, inferring, questioning, character traits, and a blank one for you to add your own strategies.

Tomorrow is a friend's b-day and I'm so excited to give her a present... shhhh... part of it is a chocolate bacon candy bar!

  5. I purchased your fabulous RRJ resources but cannot print it. Any advice?

    1. Have you had any other luck? I have sold many of these and haven't heard this from others... do you have the most recent version of Adobe Reader installed on your computer?
