Product Description
It’s absolutely essential to teach students how to read text, process what the passage says, and understand its meaning. One way to do just that is to help students learn about and develop reading comprehension skills like making inferences, finding the main idea, summarizing, sequencing and differentiating between facts and opinions.

A great way to get students excited about reading is with these Doodle and Do mini-units! This bundle of Doodle and Do mini-units is the perfect way to address critical reading skills and get students excited about learning.

Here’s how each mini-unit works: First, students complete highly engaging Doodle Notes about each reading comprehension skill. Then, they complete 5 fun learning activities and read passages to help them develop the skill. There are 3 reading comprehension passages included in each mini-unit.

Mini-Units in this bundle: Inferencing, Finding the Main Idea, Sequencing, Summarizing, and Fact and Opinion

Each mini-unit is completely customizable, too! First, there are two types of doodle notes included (filled-in and guided notes versions) in each unit. This makes it easy to differentiate instruction. Then, there are two instructional versions included in every mini-unit! You can either put together a fun student packet with reading skills worksheets, or you can set up 5 learning stations. This way, you can create the very best learning experience for your students!

The Doodle and Do mini-units are designed to be taught over the course of 2-3 days.


About “Doodle” Notes:
First, students will learn all about each reading skill by completing a set of doodle notes. Doodle notes are color-it-in, fill-it-in, and doodle-encouraging note sheets. They’re not only visually engaging, they’re also effective in helping students increase their focus and ability to recall information. Plus…they’re really fun! In each mini-unit, there are 2 options of Doodle Notes:

• Option 1: All the notes are filled in. With this option students will color, embellish, and add doodles to the notes as you review the information with the class.

• Option 2: Some of the notes are filled in and students need to fill in the remainder of the notes (like guided notes). Students will work to fill in the notes as you teach the content.
