Choice boards are a wonderful way to offer students a "choice" in their work, as well as to differentiate instruction. These choice boards have been designed to go along with the Macmillan/McGraw-Hill Treasures reading series. This is for 2nd Grade, Unit 5. Unit 6 is currently available as well. Other units will be available soon.
Each week, students may choose from nine activities, each one designed based on the skills and concepts being presented that week. Activities include phonics/spelling, vocabulary, high frequency words, comprehension, writing, study skills, and cross curricular activities.
Teachers can choose the number of activities required to complete, as well as the due date. Students can work on these activities as literacy stations, or as anchor activities, to do when they are finished with their other work. Students record all of their responses in a response journal. This can be a spiral notebook or simply pages stapled together.
Selections from Unit 5 include: Dig, Wait Listen; Pushing Up the Sky; Columbus Explores New Lands; The Ugly Vegetables; and The Moon.
