First off, I've started printing anchor charts for this next school year. There are some teachers out there who have made some products for the purpose of teaching the critical vocabulary, but I couldn't quite find what I was looking for in my own classroom...so, I made them. I wanted to use all of the words designated for K-1 in one well-known story. I chose "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". This story is a well-loved story in primary grades and easy for ELL students to learn. Now until Memorial Day 2015, they are available in my TPT store for a discount.
I'll be posting more throughout the summer on this topic. Ahh, summer, why are you 6 days away from me?
