Join The 3AM Teacher, the Reading Olympians, and over 80 SUPREME education bloggers as we take you through a tour of the Reading Olympians Root Study Program!!

So now it's my turn! If you are new to my blog, welcome! My name is Diane, and I am a fifth grade literacy and social studies teacher. This is my fourteenth year of teaching fifth grade.

We started the Reading Olympians program with the Nike set. I handed out the cards for the ring as an introduction to the set of roots. Next time I will copy these on orange paper to go with the color theme of this set.
Then we spent a few days working on the graphic organizers together. They enjoyed this because they knew more words for each root than what they thought!
Here are the reading necklaces waiting for beads and tags :) The kids are really exciting about finding the roots in other contexts and situations. I gave them a recording sheet so they can write down ones that they find and so I can initial when I give them the bead. BTW, I'm going to link up with Tara this Monday for Monday Made It to share how I did these DIY brag tags. Make sure that you're a follower so you don't miss it!

  1. Using colored paper is a great idea! I also saw where a teacher allowed the students to color the borders, which I like too, because students can then add color to their illustrations. I only used the flashcards for students ho didn't score well the irst time, but I think it will be my first thing from now on - it made such a huge difference. I ordered my card rings while I was out or Spring Break!

    What a great resource!
