Do your students need practice writing stronger sentences? Give them this weekly packet alongside an independent, just-right book and allow them to write a summary and utilize strong genius sentences. Model this in class with a book, like Mary Pope Osborne's Magic Treehouse Series! Then, let your kids begin practicing those skills. You can also utilize the summary, spelling practice and genius sentence templates in class during independent practice! The template will allow you to ensure they have ample time to practice spelling words and gives you the option of including individualized spelling words and tests as well.
