This I Can Pack is truly an exciting resource because it takes close reading to another level. Students listen to a song and closely read its lyrics! This teaching/ learning resource comes with a MP3 download of the upbeat and inspirational I Can (Read it, Write It, Speak It) song and 17 pages of worksheets.
Students practice story mapping, academic vocabulary usage, visualizing, pair-sharing, narrative writing, author's message, figurative language, poster-making, and author's purpose. The writing tools in this resource can be used for direct instruction or standardized test preparation.
