Complete ELA Back to School Bundle will provide you all of the lessons, materials, and activities to teach those first 12 weeks of school- ZERO prep involved! From introduction activities and procedure slides (introduced using fun memes) to specific reading and writing strategies that have been the most beneficial to my struggling readers and writers. This CCSS aligned bundle is both completely digital and printable!
I personally believe that those first twelve weeks are the most challenging and stressful! I know that I was so consumed with classroom set-up, meetings, PLC groups, professional development, and connecting with new staff and students that I hardly had time to think curriculum! That is why I created this unit bundle! Let my experiences do the work for you! What I have done is compile lessons from my curriculum that will most benefit your new readers and writers. I start the school year by teaching close reading strategies (which I call “talking to the text). Then I spend the remainder of the school year continuing to practice these strategies through every unit. The first complete unit included in this bundle contains detailed lesson plans to help you best support your students with these close reading strategies. Then, each added unit contains its own detailed lesson plans. This unit bundle will give you everything you need to teach your middle school ELA classes in a way that dramatically improves the reading and writing skills of your students!
