Summer Share and Prepare

I've been waiting all summer to launch a new linky party, Summer Share and Prepare!

I am always so impressed by the creativity of other teachers I find through the blogging world or through TPT. I create a lot for my students, and I have a great team to work with at school, but even still, I would be selling my students short if I didn't take advantage of some of the fun and meaningful products teacher friends have poured hours into making. The purpose of this summer linky is to share a product you made that you think others would like AND use the link up to prepare for next year by seeing others' products.

Summer Share and Prepare:

1. Link Up to a Blog Post about your Product - Please include the image above!  (Or directly to the product if you don't have a blog or are pressed for time)

2. Prepare for next year by reading about other products. Leave some love on other teacher's blogs!

I'm sharing about graphic organizers I created to help my students with the Reading Literature Common Core Standards. I use these graphic organizers during interactive read-alouds, strategy groups, guided groups, independent practice, and for formative assessments. I even copy one on the back of their reading log each week so they can continue to practice these skills with a book at home. The graphic organizers help provide the structure your students need for the deep level thinking skills they are developing as they work toward the common core standards. I use them over and over again with different texts. I'm sharing this for the first Summer Share and Prepare Linky because it is something I use in my classroom SO MUCH. It's a "I couldn't live without it" product! I'm finalizing my non-fiction set so that will be available soon!

To see the product, click over to my store here. ON SALE TODAY ONLY!
