This product was created by my first grade team and I for our adorable little students. Our goal is to provide our students the maximum exposure to comprehension, critical thinking, and additional exposure to writing.
In this packet you will find all of the Essential Questions, Reading Responses, Vocabulary practice, Grammar practice, and the Targeted skills that are in both the teacher book and students book at the end of the lesson. The notebook contains all 30 unites, and beings the year with heavily scaffolding sentence starters that can be traced and slowly increases the rigger and demand for students to develop in their reading, writing, and learning of how to write a good sentence.
As a team we printed them off in smaller packets for each unit and added additional pages from the Journeys workbook. We also included crossword puzzles and additional skill building worksheets at the end for a fast finishers.
