Product Description
Hi there! Welcome (or welcome back) to the 88Brains store!!!

We're just going to cut right to the chase: We have a new guided reading packet and IT. IS. AWESOME.

This Common Core aligned packet was created to be used with the award-winning book, Dinosaurs Before Dark by Mary Pope Osborne.

Essentially: Awesome book, awesome guided reading plans, awesome teacher, awesome students. (We're sensing a theme here!) Don't be shy...take a look around.

Here's what we provide for each chapter:

* An "I Can" statement that gives an overall learning objective that clearly states what each child should be able to do upon completion of the chapter.

* Pre-selected vocabulary words, definitions, example sentences, and a place for your students to practice using these words.

* A mini-lesson that introduces a specific reading skill.

* A reading skill practice example with examples from the story.

Reading Skills Include:

- Using Venn Diagrams
- Cause and Effect
- True/False Statements
- Sequential Order
- Referencing the Text
- Author's Purpose

* Activities that the students complete to practice the reading skill.

* A literacy skill practice assignment that students can complete individually, in pairs or small groups, or with the teacher.

Literacy Skills Include:

- Nouns
- Verbs
- Adjectives
- Homophones

* A writing challenge section that invites students to participate with the characters and plot by drawing parallels to their own experiences. (Think: text-to-self, text-to-text, or text-to-world.)

* A vocabulary review that allows students to complete sentences using the appropriate vocabulary word from that chapter.

What else do we provide?

* 3 vocabulary quizzes: Chapters 1-3, Chapters 4-6, and Chapters 7-10

* An 11-question multiple-choice assessment that prepares students for EOGs, EOCs, and other standardized tests.

* A glossary of the 24 vocabulary words highlighted throughout the packet that includes definitions and new example sentences.

* 21 super-cute original clip art illustrations!

* Answer Keys.

Just add:

* Dinosaurs Before Dark book set.

* Your own special Teacher Swag!


* Print in color for best results

* Consider printing front and back for green points

* Continue shopping at the 88Brains store ;)
