PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Differentiated ELA Centers with EASY Teacher Prep!

This pack was created to support independent activities for the literacy block. It contains 9 differentiated activities that are slightly different than my other centers. Instead of creating one task with several different levels of difficulty cards, the activities are differentiated by either the complexity of the recording sheet and task or by the actual readability of the task. I made this change to help teachers create meaningful, differentiated centers, while requiring less time to prepare and create! Another new feature I added to this pack is a printable resource poster for EACH center! The centers include:
• Smitten with Synonyms-The students will match the synonyms by putting together puzzle pieces. Two different recording sheets are included for differentiation. The first recording sheet uses picture cues to help match the synonyms. The second recording sheet does not have picture cues.

• Adoring Antonyms- The students will match the antonyms by matching word to a picture. Two different recording sheets are included for differentiation. The first recording sheet uses picture cues to help match the antonyms. The second recording sheet does not have picture cues.


• Character Traits with Harriet Tubman- The students will read a passage about Harriet Tubman. They will sort character traits into words that do and do not describe Tubman. Two differentiated recording sheets are included. The first recording sheet requires students to simply sort character traits. The second recording sheet requires students to sort the character traits, then choose three of the traits to provide evidence from the text on why these traits describe Tubman.

• We Love Main Idea-The students will read paragraphs to determine the main idea. Two differentiated versions of main idea cards can be used. One version has a picture clue in the bottom right corner to match the topic. The second version has a numbered heart, so the students do not have a visual cue about the topic or main idea. Each version of the main idea cards has a correlating recording sheet. The first recording sheet allows students to select the main idea from a set of multiple choices. The second recording sheet requires students to write the main idea of each paragraph.


• Cherished Context Clues- Students read cards with sentences with an underlined word. Then, they will use context clues to determine the meaning of the underlined word. There are two differentiated recording sheet choices. One recording sheet gives the students a multiple choice to choose from. The other recording sheet requires students to write the meaning of the underlined word using context clues.

• Crazy for Drawing Conclusions- The students will read a card with a paragraph on it. Then, the students will answer the question (and draw a conclusion) about the paragraph. Two different recording sheets are included for differentiation. The first recording sheet requires students to choose the best conclusion from a multiple choice bank. The second recording sheet requires students to write in the best conclusion.


• Be a Literary Reading Detective- The students read a literary passage and then can either answer questions about the passage, or can use question stem cards, to create and answer their own questions about the passage. There are three levels of the passage (Beginning 2nd , Mid 2nd,, End 2nd) and two different versions of the recording sheet.

• Be an Informational Reading Detective- Students read an informational passage and then can either answer questions about the passage, or can use question stem cards, to create and answer their own questions about the passage. There are three levels of the passage (Beginning 2nd , Mid 2nd,, End 2nd) and two different versions of the recording sheet.


• Moonstruck Over Multiple Meaning Words- The students will read a card and determine the meaning of the underlined word. Two different recording sheets are included for differentiation. Copy the first sheet for a simpler task. Copy both sheets front to back for a more difficult task. The first recording sheet requires students to circle the picture of the multiple meaning word written on the card, based on sentence level context. The second recording sheet, for the back, requires students to write three sentences using words that were not circled on the front of the recording sheet.


Teacher’s Helpers Included!

This is an additional pack of teacher’s helpers to make your literacy block as smooth as possible! Included in this file is:

• Center Icons for Rotations or Bin Labels- These are square labels that match each of the centers’ cover sheets. These are perfect for center rotations or for labeling bins.
• Center/ Work Stations Menu or Cover Sheet- I created this sheet for students to check off as they complete the center/work station each day. They can also be used as a daily or weekly reflection piece for students.
• Student’s Reflection Rubric- At the end of the week, students have a simple rubric to complete that allows them to reflect on their effort and understanding.
• Simple Grading Sheet- This is a simple sheet for teachers to staple to the top of all of one student’s centers. There is a checklist of all the centers and teachers can score all of the centers for one student. There are four checklists to a sheet.
• Teacher Check Sheet- Editable checklist to mark off if students have turned in all the centers in this pack.
