How to Use These In Your Classroom!

All you will need for these activity sheets to work in your classroom is a variety of Fiction and Nonfiction texts (articles, websites, books, picture books, short stories, chapter books).

As a teacher, I always seem to have a collection of texts, but nothing to go with them. This resource solves that problem!!! I place a few different texts out for my students to choose from (as one of my Literacy Centers), and one of these Activity Sheets (depending on the skill we are working on). I change out the activity sheet once a week and provide new texts as needed. Students can also use their "independent reading" book with these sheets!

Another way I use this resource in my classroom is during Guided Reading. I use any text of my choosing and the activity sheet that aligns with the standard I am teaching. This is a great way to differentiate. You can use the same activity sheet with each group, but with a different text (on their level).
