Download my standards-based mini-books that can be used with any piece of nonfiction/informational texts and literature. Students can use these in their interactive notebooks, reading journals, or kept separate for review activities. Size of pages is approximately 6.2 inches x 5 inches (but teachers can resize when printing for larger/smaller dimensions).
Students will practice the following skills:
• Interpret words for technical and connotative meanings using context clues and prior knowledge.
• Infer the denotations and connotations of words.
• Analyze the impact of the words on the meaning and tone of the passage/story.
The skills practiced are aligned to the Common Core State Standards (but can be used with any state/country standards). Specific alignment for each grade level is provided.
