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:
* 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.
* 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 ;)
