Teacher Talk Cards, created by Melissa Killingbeck from Flushing, Michigan, scaffold teachers during the ramp up of learning and using the CAFE strategies. The back side of the card has what she calls "Teacher Talk" which is what the teacher might say or do to teach the strategies. Again, they are just meant to be troubleshooting ideas for teachers when they are conferring with students.

Melissa prints the cards front to back on card stock and then cuts the paper in half. When they are complete the front side of the card has a basic explanation of the CAFE strategies and the back is the Teacher Talk.

Melissa said, "I am sure the more the teachers use and get comfortable with the language and strategies, the less they will need the teacher talk."

Thanks for sharing Melissa!
