PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Research shows that both reading and writing instruction are most effective when they are connected. This packet of activities all about topics appropriate for Spring months is an effective way to connect reading to writing in your classroom. These activities are aligned with Common Core reading and writing standards and WIDA ELD standards for English language learners.

Included are 12 differentiated reading activities that connect reading to writing with post-reading writing activities. The differentiation provides accessibility for a variety of students. Each topic includes three leveled readings (basic, on grade level, advanced) appropriate for grades 3-5, and three leveled activities to match the readings. Each reading on a topic contains the same information, but the language varies slightly to achieve easier or more difficult readability.

Each page is marked with the CCSS standard it satisfies and a discreet symbol that tells the teacher the level of the reading or activity. This set is excellent for diverse classrooms or social studies classrooms.

-Amerigo Vespucci
-The Alamo
-Albert Einstein
