This bundle includes:
Vocabulary Cards – I use this for my bulletin board in my classroom. I also do book studies with my students. I split my kids into groups and they do activities like this for several different books. So for vocabulary, I just give them the words. They cut them out and discuss the definitions. Then they draw a picture to go with each word. Last, they create a poster with the words, definitions, and pictures.
Pre-reading Questions – Use this for morning work the day you do the read aloud. This will help the students connect to the story before you read. Also helps to boost background vocabulary.
Comprehension Questions – 17 questions to go with the story. I tried to break it up with a graphic sort, a sequencing question, and a drawing question at the very end. Several questions also lead to text evidence. This would make for a great substitute worksheet.
Compound Words Worksheet - This worksheet is fairly easy. It would make a great homework sheet or just to add to a workbook for students to complete on their own.
Sequencing Cut-and-Paste: My students love this activity. Students will cut out the boxes and move them around to the correct order in which they happened.
Rules are Important Worksheet: Students come up with four important school rules. They will write what could go wrong, and then draw a picture of students doing the right thing. Great for a beginning of the year review. Color Wheel Cold Read and Coloring activity: Students will read about the differences between primary and secondary colors. Students will have to study the chart to color and complete all of the missing labels. Students will then answer three questions that relate to the paragraphs and chart.
