I just love readinga-z.com and the leveled readers they have on their website! I use them in small group daily, to differentiate my groups and to meet my students' needs. This mini packet is a companion pack for the level J book " Ocean Animals."
Included in this pack is:
~A guide to a 2-day small group lesson to review main idea, compare and contrast, and inferences.
~There are 2 versions of the main idea page: one--Students choose the main idea by choosing the main idea and the students provide the details, or two-- students determine both the main idea and details.
~11 page packet (or individual sheets) with a before reading question to build background knowledge, vocabulary practice, main idea and details practice, after reading comprehension questions!
This book is excellent for reviewing and practicing skills previously taught throughout the year.
