Engage your students and practice core ELA skills with these engaging, relevant tasks!
What is an Essential?
Essentials are short activities linked to basic reading, writing or language skills. In these activities, students practice these basic skills in authentic situations that feature topics they know and love. We include final questions that help students develop critical thinking skills.
Each Essential also includes a complete teacher guide, answer key and rubric.
In Letter Locations, students use different rooms and locations to practice sounding out and spelling CVC and CVCC words found in those locations. They label given objects using their knowledge of consonant and short vowel sounds. When they finish, they can repeat the activity using a different location.
8 different editions or versions of this Essential are included so students can work with the edition they are most interested in, an appropriate edition can be chosen to match the interests of the class, or the editions can be used at classroom stations. Some of the editions included are the beach, the park, and the store (see complete list below), which all require students to work with different information linked to their selected edition.
The full list of editions included is:
