This is a labor of love two years in the making. I was tired of waiting for students to copy notes from the board or wasting so much paper they all just seemed to lose! Based on the common core standards this is a "closed" guide in which students fill in the blanks as the lesson progresses. Used during vocabulary, direct instruction, or as a tool for the room, this guide is meant to provide support to students throughout the year! There is a student guide, with missing words, as well as a teacher guide with all the blanks filled in. An excellent resource to send home to parents who want to help more at home as well!
