Wall Charts for Beginning Readers -- Sarah Bledsoe's PreK-K Class
- Grades: PreK–K
This month I visited 4th year teacher, Sarah Bledsoe’s, combined Preschool and Kindergarten class at Heath School in Heath, MA. Sarah uses wall charts with a combination of words and pictures for her beginning readers. To learn about Sarah’s wall charts, read on.
Sarah Bledsoe’s PreK – K classroom is a language-rich environment, full of colorful books and handmade charts, signs, and posters. Sarah teaches guided reading, phonics, writing, and math. She knows her 13 students well. The children see a lot of one another. “They start acting like siblings because they’re constantly together,” says Sarah.
