This bundle includes:
Vocabulary Cards – I use this for my bulletin board in my classroom. I also do book studies with my students. I split my kids into groups and they do activities like this for several different books. So for vocabulary, I just give them the words. They cut them out and discuss the definitions. Then they draw a picture to go with each word. Last, they create a poster with the words, definitions, and pictures. Then they present them to the class. Don’t have enough time for that? Just print off and touch on the words before the read aloud.
Pre-reading Questions – Use this for morning work the day you do the read aloud. This will help the students connect to the story before you read. Also helps to boost background vocabulary.
Comprehension Questions – 25 questions to go with the story. Not just your normal write in the answers. I tried to break it up with a graphic sort, a sequencing question, and a drawing question at the very end. Several questions also lead to text evidence. This would make for a great substitute worksheet.
Facts and Opinions Worksheet= This worksheet is fairly easy. It would make a great homework sheet or just to add to a workbook for students to complete on their own.
Biography Book Report Worksheet: This can be used with this book or any biography. Students will organize information and rate/recommend.
Sequencing Cut-and-Paste: My students love this activity. Sometimes having movable pieces of paper are easier to decide where events happened in a story. Students will cut out the boxes and move them around to the correct order in which they happened. Provide sentence strip paper or a larger piece of construction paper to allow students room to draw a picture for each box.
Braille Coding Worksheet- Students will spend time copying the dots that go with the words that Helen might have learned. A cool extension would be to have students write their spelling words on a grid showing the same Braille Dots.
Answer Keys are provided! Perfect for 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade. Substitute days or homework for parts of this product would be great!
