Students ENGAGED in LEARNING! All lessons have a student Spelling/Vocabulary (matching) List, Skills of the Week Cards for rings, and Comprehension Discussion Cards for challenging collaboration. Every aspect of these supplemental materials is extremely teacher friendly by providing an organized and effective learning format for students. In other words, this is essential for a teacher’s weekly SURVIVAL!
What YOU will be receiving:
♦ Teacher Information Pages at the beginning of each freebie, preview, unit, or bundle explaining all activities.
♦ Student Spelling & Vocabulary List for school and/or home practice. Parents love knowing what is being taught. The vocabulary section on the list is an immediate matching activity for students to apply their knowledge and to help them study. The Answer Key is also included.
♦ Student Skills of the Week Cards to show examples of weekly grammar/decoding skills and placed on each student’s own ring. (They are quite proud of their rings!) These are used for daily/weekly review and also can be used on the weekly tests when they are so darn hard at times!
♦ Lifesaving Comprehension Discussion Cards that are the actual comprehension questions on the weekly test. These are question cards and answer cards that can be used whole group, small groups, one-on-one, and as a “scoot” activity as well. Using these ready-made cards can be an instant comprehension reading center each week. The cards can even benefit Resource and Title teachers.
♦ Handy teacher page with the Spelling Test Sentences for giving the weekly test so you only carry a clipboard instead of the heavy manual.
