    Bundle Description

    This back to school reading passages bundle focuses on reading skills with back to school reading activities that use songs to teach timeline, comprehension, context clues, sequence of events, synonyms and antonyms, fiction vs. nonfiction, and problem and solution reading skills. Using biographies and superhero songs that are written as reading passages, students will listen to music that tells the stories of exciting characters while learning reading skills. After listening to the songs, students will complete a variety of activities that target specific skills by reading and analyzing song lyrics.

    *Listen to the songs with subtitles on YouTube!*

    How to use these activities:

    - Explain to students the skill that will be practiced that day.

    - Remind students to listen and read for understanding while the song plays and during the activity.

    - Review a comprehension question with students in order to model what information they should pay attention to while listening and reading. (If necessary, review the WH words with students and what type of information is needed in order to answer each WH question. For example, "When did she move to France?" must be answered with a time answer.)

    - Play the song and have students listen and follow along with the lyrics.

    - When the song is finished, have students complete the comprehension questions to ensure they understand the content. (Students often ask to have the song replayed as they do so which is fine.)

    - Review the comprehension questions with students.

    - Have students complete the next skill activity of your choice.

    - Review the skill of the day with them. Reference the directions for each skill activity if needed.

    - Continue to review with students as necessary when each skill activity is finished.
