Here is some more description and detail for some of the content that is included in this packet:
There is a separate set of Spelling, Vocabulary, and High Frequency word cards; each in a different color. Bulletin Board “header” is included to match each set
We have developed writing “templates” for many of the writing opportunities found within this lesson. In our classrooms we use these writing templates in a variety of ways. They can be used for assessment to monitor student development in all areas of vocabulary and writing. We also use these pieces of student writing for the bulletin boards in the classroom to always have current student writing shown tied directly to the current anthology or lesson you are teaching. These pieces of writing can also be saved for a writing portfolio to show writing progress on various genres of student writing as they grow throughout the year, and shown at Open House.
Early Finishers Task Cards Mini Set:
We use in “Centers” with parents (who may need to read them to students) or with students who can read on their own. They are used as extra activities and practice for early finishers or for a “center” or buddy work.
We have developed an “Essential Question” for this passage to promote higher level thinking, citing examples and evidence, and align with Common Core Practices.
