I am getting ready to implement Beanie Baby Reading Strategies. I found the info on the web this summer and I made a bookmark to go with the decoding part. I don't have the actual beanie babies yet, but for now I'll use the posters. There are specific animals to go with decoding strategies and another set of animals for the comprehension strategies. You can get a copy of the decoding bookmark from my web page. You can look at the following website for posters to print out. I think this will really get the attention of the kids!
