I follow some great blogs.  One of them is from http://mindwingconcepts.com.  It is the Language, Literacy, RTI Blog.  A couple of weeks ago I read a timely (for me, anyway) post The Incredible Flexible You and Braidy Make a Great Pair.    MindWing concepts,inc.  has some terrific tools and intervention materials for helping students who struggle with language and literacy development and Braidy, the StoryBraid™ is one that I have found to be very useful in our Book Chat group to assist with story grammar.   Here is a picture of my Braidy.

Here is worksheet to show how Braidy works.

 

Sean Sweeney’s blog post showed me how I could use Braidy, along with The Incredible Flexible You™ curriculum, which I have used in a Kindergarten classroom this school year.  TIFY curriculum facilitates social cognitive concept development through stories and play.  The stories and play activities have a strong connection to story grammar.

Last Tuesday, in Mrs. Lindstrom’s class, I tried out the combination.  We read

We all liked the lesson.   Check out http://mindwingconcepts.com/Language-Development-Literacy-RTI-blog/the-incredible-flexible-you-and-braidy-make-a-great-pair.  TIFY curriculum is published via Social Thinking® and available for purchase at http://www.socialthinking.com

My Best,
