Fairy Tale Princess Collection for ELA Language Arts and Reading Centers or Fast Finisher Comprehension Activities. The nine princesses each have the 3 activities - BONUS: there are 2 versions of each activity so you can differentiate or adjust as you move through the school year.
The cute princess clip art immediately reminded me of the Scholastic Fairy Tale books in our class library that my students (ok, the girls) love to read. So I created these activities for the students.
Each page is labeled with the 1st grade CC standard so you can document each skill on your standards checklist. I model/teach how to complete the activities at small group first so students know how to complete the tasks when they find it in the center
Great for 2nd grade too! The 2nd opinion writing is in the form of writing a letter to a classmate or the teacher. Students can trace inside or use a red crayon on the bubble letters in the letters. The bubble letters and commas in the greeting and closing expose students to the 2nd grade common core language standard. Therefore, this product is also great for review at the beginning of 2nd grade or to differentiate for 2nd graders who need more practice with the skills from 1st grade. (So tell your 2nd grade or resource teacher friend down the hall to purchase this too!)
