Engage your students and practice core ELA skills with this bundle of fun, short tasks!
What is an Essential?
Essentials are short activities linked to basic reading, writing or language skills. In these activities, students practice these basic skills in real world situations that feature topics they know and love. We include final questions that help students develop critical thinking skills.
Each Essential also includes a complete teacher guide, answer key and rubric.
In Notable Quotables, students read interviews with Olympic athletes to practice using commas and quotation marks with direct speech and quotations.
8 different editions or versions of this Essential are included so students can work with the edition they are most interested in, or an appropriate edition can be chosen to match the interests of the class. Some of the editions included are basketball, track and field, and women's soccer (see complete list below), which all require students to work with different information linked to their selected edition.
