Finding the Main Ideaand Supporting Details of Short Stories.
The short stories I have written contain words from pre-primer, primer, 1st grade and 2nd grade Dolche word lists. Although the lessons address mainly first and second graders, I have used many lower-level vocabulary words. This strategy has worked well for my students since it enables students to focus on the concept being taught rather than struggling with vocabulary.I have, also, included many content specific words.
Included in this beginning unit, you will find three short stories. For vocabulary reinforcement, you will find flascards and activities with word cards and a board game.
I have recommended two books that fit perfectly with this unit for background knowledge and vocabulary. Excellent reads before beginning story #2. I know your student will enjoy the teacher-directed lessons as much as my students did. Please give me feedback as it helps me improve my products.
