There are a variety of other skills included in the extension exercises to extend students including - run on sentences, contractions, question marks, spelling.
This editing pack encourages students to mark the work so that the skills taught become automatic.
All of the skills are continually repeated throughout the 10 weeks, again, so that students begin to use the skills and rules automatically.
This pack is suitable for a variety of different levels. Questions are color coded -
Blue = must do
Black = earn extra points
There are black extension questions on every slide so that all students are engaged in meaningful learning. The blue questions are simplified so all students can achieve success and see growth and they really reinforce the targeted skill. This means there won't be students waiting and becoming distracted while other students finish. Students love moving onto exercises that give them a chance to gain extra points!
