Standards Based Brochures in the Classroom

Why We Created Standards Based Brochures

Why We Created Standards Based Brochures

You know that stress that you have every single year? You know, the yearly question: “What grade level will you teach next school year?” Well, one year, Deserae got handed a 4/5 combo class! Yikes! As the year progressed, she started making one brochure at a time just to keep students in one grade level busy while she finished up a lesson with the other grade level. I remember walking in and picking up a brochure and quickly said, “Ummm, hello! I NEED these!” Standards Based Brochures were not just for a combo class. Standards Based Brochures are a necessity for every classroom!

Spiral Your Standards Through Reading With Standards Based Brochures!

What are Standards Based Brochures?

Standards Based Brochures are a ready to use resource that will have students applying what they are learning to the books that they are reading. Each Standards Based Brochure lists the standard, gives a place for students to write a definition, provides a place to list examples, and lists questions for students to consider as they are reading. Standards Based Brochures then provide students with five opportunities for practice using the standard chosen. Brochures can be used with class read aloud books, independent reading books or picture books. Students find the standard they are practicing in the books they are reading. Then, students prove their findings in the frames provided. Each Standards Based Brochure walks students through the standard so that they are able to do the brochure independently.

Standards Based Brochures Connect Reading to Learning

Why Use Standards Based Brochures?

In our classrooms, we want our students to take the standards that they are learning out of a superficial context and into an authentic one. Standards Based Brochures are a way for students to connect what they read to what they are learning. Our ultimate goal is to have our students read with binoculars on that zoom in and find how the author is using the standard in the book.

Standards Based Brochures Zoom in on Learning!

Standards Based Brochures are a Opportunity for Application!

Why Teachers LOVE Standards Based Brochures

Standards Based Brochures hit so many “checks” for teachers! Spiral Review… CHECK! Independent Practice… CHECK! No Prep… CHECK! We love using Standards Based Brochures in our classrooms!
