This is a complete set of worksheet pages for each section of Everything You Need to Know About Frogs and Other Slippery Creatures.
This text has SO MUCH wonderful information and incredible graphics for students. The module only covers a few pages inside the text. I found while teaching the unit that my students were constantly asking, “When are we going to do THIS page?!” Pointing to a new page with colorful graphics and amazing pictures.
This bundle is an answer to that question! Each set of pages has a supplemental ELA worksheet to go with it. Using the standards covered throughout the unit there are worksheets that provide extra practice on the skills needed to achieve mastery.
In my classroom we used this as a way for students to have more choices about the content that they accessed in the book. Sometimes I guided students towards a particular set of pages in the text, knowing that their needs would be addressed through practicing a particular set of standards by reading and then doing that corresponding skill sheet. Another time, I gave the entire packet to students to work on independently with various check ins. This came in handy particularly for my gifted & talented student.
I have now taught this unit 3 times. The students LOVE the book and are eager to learn more. We all enjoyed sharing our different expertise with one another in our debriefs at the end of ELA.
** A few pages from the text are not included as they are either too difficult or too easy, or they do not apply to 3rd grade skills.**
