Beanie Baby Strategies
I absolutely love this idea. Collect the following beanie babies from friends and garage sales, or visit Sprout for a great selection. Create a bulletin board using the following posters, pass out the bookmarks and use the animal examples in your reading workshops. I'm collecting several of each animal, so students can take the animals back to their reading area when they are practicing the strategy as a reminder of what needs to be done. Love it!
The best place to find the beanies are at garage sales. I picked up four this weekend for a quarter a piece.
