Product Description

In Horrible Harry and the Ant Invasion by Suzy Kline, Room 2B gets an ant farm and learns how to square dance... and Harry teaches Sid a lesson of his own.

Look, we know you're busy: planning lessons, grading papers, filing paperwork, and all the other myriad tasks we teachers have to tackle (all while trying to squeeze in a personal life.) Let us carry some of the weight with a thorough, engaging, fun and Common Core aligned Guided Reading packet.

Here's what we provide for each chapter:

* An "I Can" statement that gives an overall learning objective that clearly states what each child should be able to do upon completion of the chapter.

* Pre-selected vocabulary words, definitions, example sentences, and a place for your students to practice using these words.

* A mini-lesson that introduces a specific reading skill.

* A reading skill practice example with either examples from the story, or original passages designed specifically for this story.

Reading Skills Included:

- Main Idea

- Cause and Effect

* Activities that the students complete to practice the reading skill.

* A literacy skill practice assignment that students can complete individually, in pairs or small groups, or with the teacher.

Literacy Skills Included:

- Homophones (there, their, and they're)

- Homophones (knew, new)

- Homophones (to, too, and two)

* A writing challenge section that invites students to participate with the characters and plot by drawing parallels to their own experiences. (Think: text-to-self, text-to-text, or text-to-world.)

* Vocabulary review exercises.

These plans also include:

* 2 Vocabulary review quizzes.

* A 10-question multiple-choice assessment that prepares students for EOGs, EOCs, and other standardized tests (with 3 sample test questions!)

* 5 super-cute original clip art illustrations!

* Answer Keys.

Just add:

* Horrible Harry and the Ant Invasion book set.

* Your own special Teacher Swag!


* Check out our guided reading plans for Horrible Harry in Room 2B and Horrible Harry and the Green Slime to follow more of Harry's wacky adventures!

* Print in color to enhance the super-cuteness of the clip art illustrations

* Consider printing front and back for green points

* Continue shopping at the 88Brains store ;)
