This Unit 4 Bundle provides you with supplemental resources to help with comprehension, spelling, vocabulary, lesson planning, assessment, and parent communication. These will take you through the entire weekly lesson, from introducing the selection and skills, to comprehension and vocabulary practice, to assessing student mastery of skills. We know you will enjoy using these valuable support materials.
INCLUDED you will find these Unit 4 items:
* Skills Planning Chart - every skill, every spelling/vocabulary word
* Weekly Newsletters - keep students and parents up to date
* Study Guide Comprehension Questions - Common Core and higher depth-of-knowledge questions - AND answer keys (color and blackline)
* Spelling Quizzes - with sentences for dictation
* Tic-Tac-Vocabulary - help students connect and extend vocabulary skills
* Weekly Comprehension Mini-assessments - a 1-page assessment for each lesson
Each of these components is also a stand-alone resource in our store if you'd rather have only specific parts of the bundle, but by purchasing them bundled - you save a couple of dollars, so it is like getting the planning chart free! We use this planning chart to track when skills and strategies were taught, as well as for lesson planning. Administrators have remarked that they love seeing this resource with our lesson plans!
If you need further Journeys Unit 4 materials, please look for our vocabulary cards and new Choice Homework resource in our store!
