We have received an overwhelming number of requests from members to make the Literacy CAFE headings we use on the bulletin board in our classroom available by download, so here they are.
This is the only component of our CAFE Menu bulletin board that is teacher-made. All of the strategy cards are created by students.We discovered that the beautiful cards we created were virtually invisible to our students. They never referred to the cards when we created them.
Now, the words are in their handwriting and they enjoy looking at the pictures their classmates created to illustrate the strategies. We firmly believe that if you let students write and illustrate the cards, which we typically have them copy from a sticky note so the spelling can be correct, the learning is far more likely to stick!
Below are the links to four different CAFE Menu headings. Comic Sans font in large and small signs and Papyrus font in large and small signs
