CAFE Menu Board

Hello Everyone!
Just moved the rest of my "30 years of teaching stuff" to my new room!  Oh My Aching Back!  Now to organize it all and put it all back together!  Fun times!!  No, seriously, I loooove decorating a new room! I am going to continue with my western cowboy theme since I've invested way too much already.  I decided to make some new western style CAFE signs for my board.  Are you familiar with CAFE?  If you are doing Daily 5, you have probably heard of CAFE.  If not, it's not too late!  Pick up a copy of The CAFE Book by Boushey and Moser and dig in!  The Sisters present a way to engage all your readers in the areas of Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, and Expanding Vocabulary.  Using it along with Daily 5 is a perfect combination.  To get you started, I'm sharing my new CAFE board.  I'll take some pics when I get it all put up, But here are a few snippets. You can click below to get your free 20 page printable.

There are pages for each heading, and all the strategies to build literacy in your students.
I love the Sisters!!

Let me know if you have any questions!!!
OH! A friend caught a minor typo in my Reading log. (I hate typos!UGH!) If you've already downloaded it, check again for the new one.

Have a wonderful and joyfilled day!!
