I use these morning work pages at the beginning of every library. They review the concepts we discussed during the last class and have students refresh their memories while I check their books in at the circulation desk. If you are a classroom teacher "morning work" is a good way to carve out time for attendance/lunch/etc. while having students review skills that they know.
These pages can also be used at the end of a lesson and are quite flexible.
There are two, differentiated, pages for each concept. Each page has students rainbow write (write each letter in different colors--my students love that!) the word in question. Next, each word is either used in a sentence or a sentence explaining the word is copied depending on the level of the student. At the bottom of each page there is a task related to the word. For example, if the word is "Title," than students could be asked to circle the titles on the provided book cover illustrations. There are opportunities for coloring in relevant clipart as well.
This bundle contains setting, character, title, fiction and nonfiction. There are four pages for setting and two for the other concepts. There are 12 pages total.
I hope you find this as helpful to your beginning of class routine as I do!
I will upload new bundles each month as I finish using them in my lessons.
Please remember to print out using Adobe Reader and *not* Preview. There really is a difference in the quality of the graphics.
