Rainbow Craft Freebie, a Sale, and Visual Plans for the Week

I broke out the paint last week!  I was waiting for some copies to get back from our duplicating office and I was out of building copy machine copies (we have a limit and I reached mine for the month), so I came up with something on the fly.  We read My Many Colored Days by Dr. Seuss and painted rainbows.  At home, I made printable rainbow strip templates.  I trimmed construction paper and ran it through the printer.  You can click {HERE} to get the strips.

Last week, I wanted the kids to see what bears really look like.  I could not take them to a zoo.  So I ordered a digital copy of Bears on my Amazon Prime.  I love this because now I will always have access to it it and I don't need to store it.


Here are my plans for this week:

I am linking up with Mrs. Wills' again!

Visual Plans for the Week of March 23rd: Bears and Soft C

I made a little freebie to go with this week's plans.  Just click above to download.   I am going to work on making more interactive notebook flaps to add to my Bears!! packet.

Here are my plans for the week.


I made this Soft C Literacy Center Packet to use this week.  The packet is temporarily listed at $2.50! Snag it now before it goes back up to full price!  Don't you love the cute ring master on the cover Mel made me?   I love Graphics from the Pond.  Mel is seriously so talented.

Plans for the Week of March 8th

I am sorry these are late.  I have been busy trying to pack my house for a move.  I cannot believe how much stuff I have accumulated.   For the next few weeks, I am not going to be able to put the links in my actual plans.  It just takes up so much time.  The links will be below the plans.   I also won't be able to make new products or respond as fast to Q&A's.  Thank you for your understanding!
Just click above to download the plans.  

Here are some of the packets I am using this week:

This version above is included in my St. Patrick's Day packet or for sale individually in the packet below.

Reading Comprehension Cueing Cards

This reading comprehension cueing card packet has a multitude of uses! There are 34 comprehension cueing cards, with versions in full page and mini-sized. There are color and B&W versions for each set of cards. The mini-sized work well on a binder ring for at home reading comprehension support. 

I originally created a version of these cards way back in 2008 to help my Autistic students with reading comprehension. I noticed that giving these students a consistent visual cue, helped them with answering comprehension questions.  I also noticed the cards benefited my general education students as well.  In this packet, I have included both recall and higher level thinking comprehension questions. I have also updated the packet to included Close Reading Questions.  


I send a black and white version of the cards home in each students' book baggie.
I found that the mini-comprehension cards increased home support. Parents found it easier to talk to their children about reading. 

The large cards can be used for focus walls, anchor charts, Reader's Workshop, and/or Guided Reading.

Or you may want to make a ring of the mini cards for fast access during Guided Reading or Independent Reading conferences.

I do hope that you check them out!  If you already purchased, you get the update for FREE!  Just redownload.
