This Product Includes:
• “I had a dream” writing sheet- Students draw in their dream and write a few sentences about it. There is a boy and girl version (little character on the bottom of the page under the dream bubble) and with this resource are pre-made sentences for the special needs students. I have included some blank boxes as well.
• “Big Dreams” writing worksheet. Students write what their dreams are in 4 different bubbles, with a character in the middle of page.
• a craftivity- There is a MLK writing piece where students can write how they can change the world. There is a craft with this and templates included with instructions.
• a mini-book Reader. There are 2 different versions of this both available in color and blackline versions. The first mini-book reader has four pages on one, so when put together, will be a quarter page size. The second version has 2 pages on one sheet, so it will be a half page sized book. The color versions are great for the teacher to read or for students with special needs. In these books there is also a glossary in the back of the book and a writing piece on the last page of the mini-book.
• a cloze passage. I use this fill-in-the-blank worksheet after reading the mini-book to assess their learning. The sentences are pulled directly from the book. There is a Word bank for the students to choose from. I have two versions available: one with 10 answers and one with 5 answers for special needs students. Also with special needs students, I let them have the story to look back at to help guide them to fill in the blanks. I have included an answer key with this worksheet.
