This bundle includes:
Vocabulary Cards – I use this for my bulletin board in my classroom. I also do book studies with my students. I split my kids into groups and they do activities like this for several different books. So for vocabulary, I just give them the words. They cut them out and discuss the definitions. Then they draw a picture to go with each word. Last, they create a poster with the words, definitions, and pictures. Then they present them to the class. Don’t have enough time for that? Just print off and touch on the words before the read aloud.
Pre-reading Questions – Use this for morning work the day you do the read aloud. This will help the students connect to the story before you read. Also helps to boost background vocabulary.
Comprehension Questions – 17 questions to go with the story. Not just your normal write in the answers. I tried to break it up with different formats and level of questions. Several questions also lead to text evidence. This would make for a great substitute worksheet.
Realistic Fiction vs. Fantasy= This worksheet is fairly easy. A short description and reminder box is available for students to review on their own. Students will have to decide if the sentence the sentence would be a part of realistic fiction or fantasy. Students then have a chance to give examples of each type.
Sequencing Cut-and-Paste: My students love this activity. Sometimes having movable pieces of paper are easier to decide where events happened in a story. Students will cut out the boxes and move them around to the correct order in which they happened. Provide sentence strip paper or a larger piece of construction paper to allow students room to draw a picture for each box.
Husky, is she the dog for you? Worksheet: Students will have to read facts about Huskies and make a choice if that type of dog would be a good one for them. Teach students to study the facts before making a decision.
