This is for all the stories in Treasures 4th grade, Unit 5- Habitats!
Here are the Vocabulary and Comprehension pages I do with my students before each reading selection. It's an important skill for students to figure out the meaning of words in context. The vocabulary page not only gives the students practice in figuring out the meanings of their words, it makes them use those words in another context. A Common Core skill! I give the students the worksheet and have them independently read the two page vocabulary selection (the one before the actual reading selection). The Comprehension practice page, goes along with the Vocabulary text and gives them a good mini-lesson before they read the actual story. I also like that it gives them a little background knowledge before reading their main selection :)
