A New Pinterest-Inspired Project, a Freebie, and a Reminder

I found another amazing idea for my classroom on Pinterest. Apparently, I am unable to come up with my own original ideas. No biggie though...I love finding wonderful ideas from other teachers, and making them my own. Although I found this idea on Pinterest, it can be traced back to an old post from Growing Kinders. What I discovered is a Story Map Poster using Post-Its!!! Here's how my own turned out:

I also decided that it might be fun for my students to have one of these to keep in their notebooks. {They get to use the little post-its!!!} So, I created the printable below. I plan to have them use these with their own independent reading books.

In other news, there is exactly one week left to participate in my Post-It Party. If you would still like to join the party click here!!!
