Description

What a beautiful read.

With rich language and through touching vignettes, Tony Johnston chronicles the life of Arturo Rodriguez and his family in the barrio of Los Angeles in Any Small Goodness. A testament to the power of kindness that remains relevant today, this accessible text will inspire your students. I've loved reading this book so much that I've designed a tailor-made set of activities to accompany it. So if you don't have time to read the book yourself, no worries. Your students can dive in and you can continue to support them every step of the way.

With Reading Road Maps, a student can reap the benefits of having an “expert reader” demonstrate good comprehension methods and questioning strategies. Reading road maps are designed to help students read independently by having each reader interact with the text while reading. The road maps utilize specific skills for high-level reading, such as inferring, predicting, summarizing, and visualizing. At times, the road map “models” good comprehension strategies by commenting on elements in the book using proven methods for comprehension. Additionally, students are able to self-select a book and read at their own pace while being held accountable for their comprehension.

These resources allow teachers to evaluate student comprehension and progress on a specific text. The questions are not general (who is the main character) but focus on precise events, characters, conflicts, plots, thematic issues.

This unique resource offers over 70 pages of materials to help kids read independently and comprehend text using a variety of skills. It includes a detailed answer key, specific text-related questions, a list of vocabulary words with definitions and page numbers, vocabulary activities, task cards, differentiated extension activities focused on the text, a culminating multiple-choice and short answer quiz (with answers), and three different concluding projects complete with rubrics. This comprehensive packet is the perfect resource to help teachers reach all levels and learners. AND if that weren't enough, it's pretty to look at too!

Perfect for grades 6-8, ELL students, or struggling readers. Can be used with individual students, whole-class instruction, or in conjunction with literature circles.
