Look, we know you're busy: planning lessons, grading papers, filing paperwork, and all the other myriad tasks we teachers have to tackle (all while trying to squeeze in a personal life.) Let us carry some of the weight with a thorough, engaging, fun and Common Core aligned Guided Reading packet. It was created for use with Amber Brown Goes Fourth by Paula Danziger.

Psst! We've also got another great packet for Amber Brown is Not a Crayon if you're interested. Now, let's continue by taking a look at what you get with this product.

Here's what we provide for each chapter:

* An "I Can" statement that gives an overall learning objective that clearly states what each child should be able to do upon completion of the chapter.

* Pre-selected vocabulary words, definitions, example sentences, and a place for your students to practice using these words.

* A mini-lesson that introduces a specific reading skill.

* A reading skill practice example that shows a completed graphic organizer with either examples from the story, or original passages designed specifically for this story.

Skills include:
- Using a Venn diagram
- Main Idea and Supporting Details
- Cause and Effect
- True/False Statements
- Author's Purpose

* A graphic organizer that the students complete to practice the reading skill.

* A literacy skill practice assignment that students can complete individually, in pairs or small groups, or with the teacher.

* A writing challenge section that invites students to participate with the characters and plot by drawing parallels to their own experiences. (Think: text-to-self, text-to-text, or text-to-world.)

* A 10-question multiple-choice assessment that prepares students for EOGs, EOCs, and other standardized tests.

* 11 super-cute original clip art illustrations; 3 of which your students can color!

* Answer Keys.

Just add:

* Amber Brown Goes Fourth book set.

* Your own special Teacher Swag!


* If your students loved Amber Brown's special brand of sass, you should also check out our plans for Barbara Park's hilarious story, Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus. We're sure you'll get a kick out of it!

* Print in color to enhance the super-cuteness of the clip art illustrations

* Consider printing front and back for green points

* Continue shopping at the 88Brains store ;)

* Keep being awesome
