Reading Buddies and Story Elements Freebie!

Wow, what a long first three days back at school after having three weeks off.  Fortunately, I see the weekend in the horizon and it's looking pretty good!
This week my second graders returned from their long break and jumped right into Daily 5.  It was so great to see them settle into our routine.  They also had the opportunity to read with their new Reading Buddies.  A parent donated a huge bag of stuffed animals and I washed them so they would be nice and fluffy.  Students chose one to read to during Read to Self time.  It was amazing how quiet their reading voices were when reading to their stuffed animals.

Pretty cute, huh?

I created this little story element sheet for extra practice this week since we are getting back into story responses.  Click on the picture to download it FREE!
This is a short post since I'm also working on my newest product.  I can't wait to share my Market Day ideas with you!
