This supplemental pack is aligned to the Journeys 2014 curriculum for 4th grade.
This Journeys Grade 4 supplemental pack is created to supplement Unit 6, Lesson 29 (Save Timber Woods!). The reading responses, activities, and interactive notebook pages focus on the Reading Literature and Language sections of the curriculum.
for ALL Journeys Lessons and Bundles available in my store!
These pages were designed to be engaging to students, yet rigorous.
The fonts are interesting but easy to read, interactive notebook pages are included, and students are given opportunities to color and cut & paste. Students must have access to the text as they work, as many pages require text evidence.
