Students ENGAGED in LEARNING! All 30 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!
Each lesson includes:
**Teacher Information Pages at the beginning of each freebie, preview, or unit 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. See in the PREVIEW the fun game we play each week with comprehension! 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.
This product aligns specifically with the Journeys 2014 Edition. However, these activities may also align with other Journeys’ Editions. In the PREVIEW and the FREEBIE, check out my list of Anchor Texts to make a comparison prior to purchasing.
Check out my BUNDLE for this product as well. If you are interested in buying all units, the BUNDLE would be a little cheaper!
NOTE to PREVIOUS BUYERS: This product was previously named Journeys Third Grade: Student Study Guides & Activities. I added more precise teacher directions and changed the format of the Spelling/Vocabulary List by adding a matching vocabulary section to help students be more engaged in learning their words! You can go back and download the individual units if you’d like this additional list.
Thanks so much for taking a look at or purchasing this resource. If you scroll down to the end pages, you will also see more products that may be helpful at this grade level! Everything I make has been used by me at various grade levels in order to benefit the students’ learning and, of course, to help me SURVIVE! We are all in this together!
Thank you so much,
