This document has each story voice recorded. I introduce the story and core vocabulary at the beginning of the lesson. After this we break into four differentiated groups. There are four rotations each day, where students listen to the story on the computer, attend a grammar/spelling lesson with me, complete a grammar/spelling worksheet that spirals with the previously learned skills, and complete a grammar/spelling sort center. At the end we spend approximately 15 minutes discussing the comprehension questions, core vocabulary focus term, and the grammar/spelling focus. This allows for differentiation and enrichment! This rotation also allows you to tie both the Domain and Unit lessons together!
