    This is a website for trading cards. I use these to discuss scientists and for Black History month. You can modify the templates to make them more appealing.

  4. I like the writing prompts that are on page 5. It would be a good way of giving students options when writing in their response journals.

    I found the synthesizing lesson on Like to Read.com. I liked this because she used all of the teaching she had done all year with reading strategies and with learning strategies. She also defined synthesizing as a step beyond summarizing and used a story to demonstrate with the kids.

    This website provides writing prompts for writing Technical Processes which will be good for writing up lab reports.

  7. As students become more proficient readers, they need to move from retelling a story to summarizing to synthesizing. This is a cute story and activity to model each step.
