Saturday, March 30, Chunky Monkey Reading Strategy I was trying to decide what would be best for my first post, and finally I decided to share what we have been working on in our classroom this past week: The Chunky Monkey Reading Strategy!
This is the first year that I have used the "Beanie Baby Reading Strategy" posters in my classroom, and I have to say it has worked beautifully! The children really relate to the animals and remember the connections I want them to make. They love it and I love it!
I have this on our front wall. They are great for practicing fluency as the children read aloud to the buddies. I am still looking for those Eagle Eyes. We learned about Lips the Fish as soon as I felt the children had a good grasp of the letter sounds and were able to get those lips ready for the beginning sound of a word they saw.
Stretchy Snake came along next to help with both reading and writing of those CVC words we came across. Stretchy Snake and Mr. Tryin' Lion is always sort of in the mix as well. I didn't even put up Flip the Dolphin or Helpful Hippo- I just didn't want to overwhelm the kids- They are cute, too, and maybe another year I will decide to!
One I cut into 8 strips. One I cut into 3 strips.
The bottom one is just 3 bigger "chunk" strips. I put it together in this picture for the children to see what the picture was supposed to look like. I asked the children which puzzle would be easier to put together. But of course some thought the 8 pieces would be very easy to do So I called up one brave student to try as the rest of us counted to ten.
After a great effort, he didn't make it.
I then mixed up the 3 piece puzzle and had another student try to complete this puzzle as we counted. He finished before we counted to six. Next I put up a puzzle of letters. You can see Chunky Monkey's little legs and arms in the upper corner looking on as we work! After I let the children try to figure out what word I mixed up, I tell them it is "teacher.
The children love to try to complete it quickly, but the chunks always win.This activity mat includes multiple winter-related games such as snowman dot to dot, word search, maze, color and write and more!
