Free resource - Teach your students about Groundhog Day with these differentiated/leveled literacy center activities. Our worksheets use a combination of photos and clearly drawn illustrations to help your students establish real world connections to the content.
We specifically design all of our learning activities as brain-building exercises to improve students' bilateral integration skills by having them cross the body's midline. It is not only the academic content, but the format and physical activity itself that has great importance. Be sure to encourage your students to utilize both hands when completing all activities including: cut and paste, drawing lines to match, and in circling or writing a response. These are simple ways to activate the left and right brain simultaneously, getting them to work together in harmony. Consistently practicing the use of bimanual skills helps students improve and develop executive functioning, planning and sequencing, visual tracking, reading, handwriting, attending, and mindfulness. Working to improve bilateral integration skills can have a profound positive impact on a student's behavior, self-esteem, physical abilities (strength & dexterity), cognition, and academic achievement.
Designed for students with disabilities, these worksheets, are clear and concise without any extraneous information. While these high quality worksheets are fantastic for all students, they are especially helpful for emergent readers, readers with learning disabilities, ESL students, and students with Autism, who will benefit from the carefully designed structure of each worksheet/activity. The simple, clear design layout of each worksheet helps students focus on the targeted content without any unnecessary distractions.
The leveled literacy activities allow teachers to utilize different versions of the same activity to meet the unique needs of the diverse group of learners within their classroom, or they may utilize the leveled activities for an individual child who needs to work their way through the content step by step. Common high frequency sight words are intentionally included to promote the success of emergent readers.
Reading comprehension of single word, sentences, and short story passages are all addressed through this comprehensive literacy packet.
