Welcome to a resource page with Glogster posters for the Reading Street selections. I have attempted to link information, games, and movies to both build background information for the selections and provide enrichment material. You can insert these glogs into your own resource wiki by clicking at the top, right-hand corner of each glog. Go to "View full-size glog", then copy the embed code.

1-1 Old Yeller

Here is a Promethean Flip Chart you could use to help teach Old Yeller.

Here is a vocabulary introduction powerpoint lesson. You could give each student a card with 1, and a card with 2 to hold up, or a white board to hold up with their choice. You can also provide cut-and-paste slips of paper with vocabulary word and definitions to match and paste in a journal.

1-4 Saving the Rain Forest

There is no finished Glog for this selection.
This is a web site Lauren Clearfield created to extend learning for Saving the Rain Forest. In this website, students are given the role as a presenter at a Rain Forest Convention. They must research a specific issue related to rain forest use or preservation, then give a speech to convince others to agree with their point of view.
