Like each of my fourth grade literature skills units, this resource is available in three formats:

  • PowerPoint (this resource) – for teachers who want a clear introduction to the standard
  • Practice – for teachers whose students need extra work on the standard
  • Unit – *best value* for teachers who want a complete learning cycle: direct instruction, guided practice, independent practice, and assessment (PowerPoint, practice, additional resources, companion website, and paperless Google option included)

You can choose the format that best fits your needs.

Enjoy!
