Product Description

You've heard of STEM lessons, and you might have heard of STEAM lessons, but have you heard of STREAMS lessons? This unit will give you approximately a month's worth of speech/language activities based on the Aesop fable The Boy Who Cried Wolf (Hennessy version). Activities incorporate science, technology, reading/language arts, engineering, art/music, math, and even social skills, all done with an emphasis on speech and language skills. What better way to foster carryover to the classroom than to practice using actual Tier 2 and 3 vocabulary to talk about fun projects and assignments. This unit is geared for low-language students, so it could be Kdg-3rd gr, ELLs, students with special needs, or students going through that stage of exploring the "fun" of telling lies.

This activity pack contains:

Story Vocabulary pictures and categorization activity

Sentence Construction templates for 3 different basic sentence types
