This 74 page Smart board walks you through the entire story of Viva New Jersey. I print out the pages of the Smart board and make activity packets. I include pages from the Reader's and Writers Notebook to supplement the activity packets. I also include resources from other Reading Street resource books to supplement the packets as well. Reading skills covered within the 74 pages include; using context clues to define the meaning of unfamiliar words, comparing and contrasting, visualizing, setting, journal writing, comprehension questions, mood, meet the author, plot mountain, characterization, theme, cause and effect, and point of view.
