Product Description
We reach all students, no matter their ability!

In this lesson, we work with primary source photos to develop strong reading skills—citing key details, making inferences, determining message or theme, and establishing historical context. Your students will be engaged and invited to be creative as they make origami book marks and write empowering messages about reading.

Hands-on and highly participatory enrichment!

This school year we’re working on filling up the portable with whole-class enrichment lessons. The lessons are designed to be used by a gifted resource teacher in a “push-in” model or for classroom teachers who want to reach all levels of ability in an engaging way.

Each lesson opens with a whole class lesson in which students respond naturally within their ability.

Several further enrichment opportunities are differentiated for higher abilities and/or for students who have a passion for the topic.

The purpose of this enrichment activity is to use the discovery process, critical thinking, inferences, and primary sources to understand why literacy is important and students are often grouped for reading and writing. A three dimensional graphic design activity challenges students to brainstorm “double meaning” pun slogans makes this lesson tons of fun.

Grade Levels: 3-6; best with 4th and 5th grades.
Materials: Construction paper.
Time: 90 minutes to 2 hours with a one hour+ extension project. Many more hours with possible enrichments for the highest ability learners.
