This resource packet is for Stage 1 teachers (6-9 years). It includes a detailed outcomes page that connects the activity to the new NSW English Syllabus and Australian Curriculum. WOOHOO!! It also aligns with Common Core Standards (USA).
The printables/lessons are designed to be used with any book, any reading level OVER and OVER again!
Use as a guided reading comprehension focus, independent activity, as a modelled activity. Even as an IEP. Casual/relief teachers LOVE them as well – they can easily be adapted to any class/levelled text.
The activities in this book are designed for Stage 1 (6-9yrs) students. Some sheets are more suited to literary or factual (imaginative, informative and persuasive) texts, but most can be used with any. All sheets have a suggested stage level in a small box on the page, but this is a GUIDE only and each sheet can be modified to suit either stage. I have included, when needed, a copy for Australian teachers using the NSW Foundation Style Font and for USA/England/Canada and other parts of the world - Comic Sans.
Included in the packet -
• Looking for Words and Lesson/outcomes page.
• Grammar Sheet and Lesson/outcomes page.
• Concept Map and Lesson/outcomes page.
• Guided Reader Activity sheet and Lesson/outcomes page.
• Placemat Round Robin and Lesson/outcomes page.
• Alpha-matrix and Lesson/outcomes page.
• WANTED! poster and Lesson/outcomes page.
My hope is that this packet will ease the burden of creating constant guided reading activities and tasks. It will provide well-planned, outcome-based activities as well as some hints and strategies for your guided reading session. AND! To introduce/link the NEW NSW English outcomes and the Australian Curriculum.
Cheers, Nic Heazlewood.
