This is Lesson Twenty-three from the 5th Grade Journeys Common Core reading series. It is intended to be used during speech and language therapy sessions, AIS sessions, or by ELA teachers as supplemental material. Vocabulary included in this packet is not the targeted vocabulary in the lesson, rather vocabulary needed by some students in order to gather the meaning of the story. Comparative/Superlative adjectives, synonyms, antonyms, past tense verbs, sentence writing, defining words, and Home on the Range lyric activities are included in this packet. Worksheets were created to be used individually or in a small group setting with teacher assistance. Pick and choose which tasks your students would need.
