Early Literacy Toolkits

I have posted about the Gazette on Teachers.net before. It is an online, monthly publication with great ideas and interesting articles on what is happening in the world of education. I couldn’t help mentioning it again this week, as I just came across a fantastic article in the August edition. Make sure to read Tools for the Coming School Year, by Cheryl Sigmon, a regular contributor to the Gazette. She suggests making a tool kit for each student, to enhance literacy instruction. Items in her toolkit include things such as sticky notes, highlighters, pens, bookmarks, and crayons. Ms. Sigmon explains that these tool kits can be used to enhance vocabulary instruction, create images during reading, mark clues while reading, and much more. Read her article for complete lesson suggestions and tips for managing the supplies.
