This is a multi-day SMARTboard lesson to go along with the Biography, "Madam CJ Walker" by Patricia and Fredrick McKissack. The .notebook file includes 20 instructional pages with vocabulary, main idea, fact/opinion, information Madam Walker, and more. Multiple organizers are included to be used interactively as well as links to printable copies for students.
A two-day printable comprehension story packet is also included to allow students to demonstrate how to answer questions about the text. It includes questions on vocabulary, fact/opinion, genre, reading skills, and comprehension.
BONUS - An additional 10 page SMARTboard file is included with center ideas for students to practice the skills included in the main SMARTboard file. Could be used for whole group, small group, or partner practice.
This unit is aligned with the 3rd grade CCSS and includes a page with an Essential Question, Key Learning, Vocabulary, and the CCSS listed.
The unit was designed using the curriculum Imagine It!, but the unit is more aligned to the story than to the curriculum. I build my lessons around Common Core!
NOTE: All my SMARTboard files allow for teacher editing, adding, or deleting of pages to meet your instructional needs. You must have Notebook software to open this .notebook file. You can download for free a Notebook Express from smarttech.com to view and edit creations.
