I recently decided that I would create a page for my teacher posts. That was fine, but it wasn't creating them as separate posts. I want to have a "pin it" button per post, as opposed to per page. So, I'm just going to merge my school makings with my home makings. They are both "makings," right?
This summer I was lucky enough to go to an Interactive Reading and Notetaking workshop with some co-workers. We attended the general one last year, but this one was specified for reading. There is a focus on applying strategies, which is a tested skill in 7th grade. The given strategies list was a blend between the creator of Interactive Reading and Notetaking's work and the research from Mosaic of Thought by S. Zimmerman and E. Keene. I added a few things here or there. The color is one thing; everything needs a little color! You can find a copy at my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
