How to Use...
•These activities are meant to be used after the standard has been taught. The activities should be viewed as a follow-up and a way for students to further understand the topic. If you are looking for the step that comes before this, we have them available in our store! They are our “Week Long Lessons.”
•Each activity is made so that they can be completed in 15-20 minutes. In our class, we use them as literacy centers. We like to set a timer, such as online-stopwatch.com, and students rotate from center to center until they have completed all of the centers. Need a center rotation board? Jobs for your centers? Levels of understanding? Check out our Literacy Center Toolkit in our store!
•Maybe you don’t have time for all 6 centers... That’s ok! Pull 3 or 4 and complete the others at a later date, or even whole class instead of in centers. You can also have one available for early finishers or as spiral review activities later in the year!
•No matter how you use them, your students will be completely engaged while mastering the standard!
