While it may seem daunting to you to switch from kindergarten to third grade after teaching so many years in kindergarten, I think you will really enjoy the older kids. I absolutely love third grade because the kids are still young enough to be super enthusiastic about everything you teach, but they are also very capable of some higher level thinking which can lend itself to exciting projects and other activities in your classroom.
You asked about the comprehension posters you saw in a photo of my classroom. Unfortunately, I created those many years ago on an old laptop and can't seem to find them anywhere! I even searched the external hard drive where I thought I had backed up everything from that computer! However, here is a link to some posters I found on the Reading Lady website. I used her site for many of my comprehension strategy resources. http://www.readinglady.com/index.php?module=pagemaster&PAGE_user_op=view_page&PAGE_id=13
