In case you haven't grabbed my Reference Sources freebie from my TPT store .... here it is!! This product includes 6 mini-posters and a sorting game for commonly used reference sources. I post these mini-posters in my classroom. My students refer to them all the time.
This final FREEBIE is a Reading Strategies Reference Sheet. I put this in my students' reading folders. I got this idea from a cute pin on Pinterest. I adjusted the strategies and questions to match my reading curriculum.
