Captivate students with opinion themed fun while meeting learning standards! This 90 page packet is packed full of excitement.
Begin with schema about frogs with two graphic organizers: KWL and Have, Can, Are charts.
Building background with themed vocabulary will assist language learners with words such as slimy, wise, glum, gobble, nature, and fierce.
Provided are several options for recording vocabulary words. Option one includes a vocabulary book with clipart images. Option two includes blank vocabulary response pages. Option three are interactive cards for journals.
Reread the story throughout the week using my prepared strategies. You'll find engaging comprehension organizers for compare/contrast, story structure, sequence of events and plot.
Understanding opinions can be challenging. You are provided a fact and opinion frog sort to use during instruction. The sort has a response page if you desire to make it a center.
Although the book is told through dialogue with speech bubbles, I found the topic of quotations to be a great teachable moment. I provided cards to use in whole group, small group or in centers to assist in understanding. The response pages are sure to elicit giggles!
Enhance comprehension with a developing reader and provide students with fluency practice with easy to read sight words! Little Frog, Little Frog What Do You See?
The unit includes instructional posters and chart essentials for opinion writing. Students can finalize their opinions and reasons with a fun themed writing project. Allow kids to choose a topic, write an opinion on their favorite book or create a review of the read aloud, I Don't Want To Be A Frog!
