Literacy Printables

Free Literacy Printables
In the folders below, you’ll find pages of free printables as well as ebooks and lessons for literacy instruction that I developed for my own classroom. Most of the materials are especially suitable for 4th or 5th grade, but many of them can easily be adapted for grades 3 through 6. For more information about strategies such as Balanced LiteracyLiterature Circles, and Reading Workshop, visit the Literacy Strategies section.
