Have you ever envied the math teachers that get to do all of the fun hands-on lessons? I know I have! Being departmentalized, I always miss the hands-on experiences from Math and Science.
I am bringing Hand-On Reading (Compare and Contrast) to you!
-THREE levels of task card passages. (2nd, 3rd, and 4th)
-Instructions for the students.
-Instructions and pictures for the teacher.
-Rubric included on the task card for easy assessment of mastery.
What is Hands-On Compare and Contrast?
A Compare and Contrast lesson that will allow students to read a passage, construct a graphic organizer with their hands and some simple supplies, then complete their graphic organizer.
-Pass out a reading task card to each student. Cards are differentiated in three -different levels. Level=Grade Level.
-Pass out a bag with the Graphic Organizer Supplies to each student.
--2 File Folders (per student)
--Each student will read the task card.
--Glue folders so that they overlap (like the picture above.)
--Cut out the Pink Lemonade, Regular Lemonade, and Both labels and glue them on the folders.
--Make a list of what makes regular lemonade and pink lemonade different (on the folders)
--Make a list of what makes them the same (inside the folder under the BOTH label.)
The kids will be highly engaged and will love working with their hands. Building the graphic organizers also makes the graphic organizer more meaningful to the students.
