Product Description
Raise your hand if you love Amber Brown?

Yeah...our hands are raised too!

This guided reading packet was created for use with Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon by Paula Danzinger. It's thorough, engaging, and loads of fun. Take a look friends!

Oh, by the way...if you really love Amber Brown, take a look at our guided reading plans for Amber Brown Goes Fourth!

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 with examples from the story.

Reading Skills Include:

- Context Clues
- Main Idea/Supporting Details
- Analyzing a Character
- Cause and Effect
- Author's Purpose

* Activities 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.

Literacy Skills Include:

- Pronouns
- Personal Pronouns
- Possessive Pronouns
- Contractions
- Conjunctions

* A writing challenge section. These are presented in two formats:
- General writing challenges which invite 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.)
- Figurative language writing challenges which introduce and review onomatopoeia and hyperbole. Students will then complete sentence prompts to practice using these forms of figurative language.

* A vocabulary review that allows students to complete sentences using the appropriate vocabulary word from that chapter.

What else do we provide?

* An 13-question multiple-choice assessment that prepares students for EOGs, EOCs, and other standardized tests.

* 22 super-cute original clip art illustrations!

* A general review crossword puzzle requiring students to provide the names of various reading/literacy skills and figurative language types introduced throughout the packet.

* A glossary that your students can refer to (to keep their vocab skills sharp).

* Answer Keys.

Just add:

* Amber Brown Is Not a Crayon book set.

* Your own special Teacher Swag!
