Post-Its for Literacy

My students need post it notes to take notes in the books they are reading, record interesting facts they encounter, and to aid in revising their writing.

My Students

"Tell me, I'll forget. Show me, I may remember. Involve me and I'll understand." Chinese Proverb~ I really want my students to learn to love reading and to have access to materials that will help them on their way.

Our district is the 9th on Niche's Most Diverse School Districts in the Nation for 2018 list.

My students attend a school that has 56% free and reduced lunch and face unique challenges at home and school. They come to school eager to learn and enjoy challenges. They are a joyful group who really likes a good adventure and will benefit from the new materials we are requesting.

My Project

Students use post it notes in versatile ways to aid in reading texts and in writing. It is common for students to mark important passages in a text, point out literary devices, and provides a handy way for them write a short summary after each chapter they read in a text. In writing, many like to add additional lines on a post it when revising their drafts.

The post it notes allow students to retell or point information out from the actual text, a critical basic skill!

This is an important skill to develop as life long learners and allows them to interact with the text in a different way.
