PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I have included in this set:

a real life comparison with a river ride to illustrate that most readers like to get right to the action and to have that action keep a good pace.
A drama with a student struggling with this issue and how a fellow student helps him/her along this road of discovery. You personalize it with the students’ names as well as yours.
An example of a narrative that keeps the action moving.
An activity that could be done whole group, with a partner, or independently where you revise a paragraph to delete unimportant details and insert others that stick with the action.
A multiple choice activity that you can project. Two paragraphs are projected and the children practice inserting and deleting details. The second one has a student copy.
For a musical connection, I play the song I Like to Move It, Move It. Although this song can be annoying, the point gets across and everyone has a smile on their face. You don’t have to play the whole song. :)
