Science Readers Literacy Guides are designed to help you foster literacy skills in your students as they learn science. There is a specific Literacy Guide available for every Student Reader in the series. Each Literacy Guide begins by identifying the Fountas & Pinnell, DRA, and Lexile levels, running word count, extended vocabulary words, compound words, and contractions used in the Student Reader.
The Literacy Guide then offers extensive Implementation support, such as:
About this Book - Suggests specific ways to introduce the unit topic to students.
Background Knowledge - Identifies specific questions you can ask your students to set the stage for reading comprehension by generating curiosity about the topic.
Before Reading, During Reading, After Reading - Simple fluency and comprehension strategies you can use with students throughout their process of reading the Student Reader.
Assessment - A black-line master is included encourages your students to demonstrate mastery of the lesson?s concepts through a simple writing activity.
Parent Resource Section - Included on the black-line assessment page, this section suggests follow-up questions parents can use to help their child develop critical thinking skills.
Science Readers Literacy Guides ensure that each of your students develops literacy skills as their science knowledge grows!
