This is a packet that can be taught hand-in-hand with Lesson 25: From Seed to Plant. This is a 9-page packet that has text-dependent questions on the skill, strategy, and genre. There are also questions on text-structure and author's purpose to promote students' thinking. The packet also requires students to create thinking maps to help with comprehension and understanding. There are also pre-created brace maps that ask students to identify the meaning, part of speech, synonym, and antonym of a vocabulary word. There are also pages that require students to use the high-frequency words in sentences as well as break vocabulary words into syllables.
