Story Grammar Marker Summer Reading List

Language/Literacy Developmental ChecklistAs I was inside during a recent heat wave here in Massachusetts, I decided to review our new Blog Index on our MindWing Concepts website. There is such wonderful information available free of charge —lessons, webinars, downloadable files and technology resources to use in combination with this developmental tool! If you are new to SGM or experienced in our methodology, take some time from your summer to browse through our blog pages.

Summer Reading ArtSince I was looking for resources today to use with a student for lessons involving the Complete Episode, I thought I would share these 10 with you. What fascinated me about these blogs is the fact that as I read through them, I was reminded again of how this methodology can be adapted across grade levels and used with varied texts. It is such a versatile tool! There are many others to choose from but I hope these get you started if you are interested in the Complete Episode!
