This PDF contains the essential things that I need to add to my weekly lessons. These are the little extras that add to the core curriculum in my classroom.
---All 30 Lessons are included in this PDF-------
This packet contains:
•Title, Author, and Genre Cards (I use these in a pocket chart)
•Target Skill and Grammar Cards (also use in a pocket chart)
•Reading Strategy Cards
•Close Reading Cheat Sheet
•Oral Vocabulary Illustrations with sentences for the back
•Take Home Stories- I like to send these home so the students can read them in the car or on the go without having to take their book home.
( I print the Home Letter from the Grab-n-Go on the back of the take home story each week.)
•Home Reading Log (front and back)
•Clues to the Conclusion Map
•Story Sheet Map (front and back)
•Student Logs for each unit (front and back) ... I use these in my small group time and keep them on a clipboard to assess my students knowledge. Then I use them for Parent Conferences.
•Daily Proofreading Practice Sheets ... I only use these as a bell ringer activity first thing in the morning. I do not use this as handwriting practice because the lines are small. They are more like practice for writing on notebook paper in the future.
I have also included my Writing Spelling Words PDF at the end as a little added bonus!
I use these things in my classroom every week!
