PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Explore neighborhoods, communities and their helpers. Compare and contrast a city and the country. Discover all the people in these areas that provide us with goods and services.
This packet is perfect to use with your social studies standards on communities and best of all it is designed to meet your balanced literacy needs so....embed that social studies standard right into your literacy program and meet both needs.
It contains:
Guided reading (comprehension sheets to follow each of the 8 suggested reading stories)
Writing (graphic organizers, prewrite pages, final copies, mini books for student interaction)
Word Work (word searches, making words, ABC order, definitions)
Data Collection
Vocabulary Cards for posting
Crafts
Games(Travel around the community with a buddy, Scoot, Bingo)
I think this packet will meet your needs in many ways. Michele
