Supplemental resources created to be aligned with Journeys Unit 2, Lesson 8: "Me and Uncle Romie” (4th Grade)
If you are using Journeys in your classroom, then these supplemental materials (based off the story "Me and Uncle Romie") will make the learning more hands-on and exciting for both you and your students!
These items can be used for literacy centers, cooperative learning, and even whole-group instruction. All activities come with recording sheets and answer keys.
**Please Note: I did not include any decoding activities with this lesson—the skill was “stressed and unstressed syllables”—which I felt was better taught in whole group instruction with verbal aid from an instructor.**
**Please Note: This is from an older version of the Journeys program. If you have the 2014 edition some of the stories may be different from those I have created. Please double check your curriculum before making a purchase. Thank you!**
