Tasha and Tio are twins who learn that a hurricane is heading their way. Together with their mom, the family plans what they will need to purchase to be prepared to shelter-in-place for the storm. Evacuation is discussed as well, because safety is the main point of both the Readers Theater scripts and the no-prep literacy packet ctivities.
Readers Theater Scripts
We teachers fill our science units with experiments, projects, and all sorts of engaging, hands-on activities. Why not switch it up a little with a literacy connection? Reading across the content areas is so important, particularly for our struggling students. This set of Readers Theater scripts will enhance your weather unit, give kids an opportunity to enjoy a fun reading activity while practicing fluency, and provide differentiation if necessary. These two scripts are formatted for a small group of five readers or a larger group of 17.
No-Prep Literacy Packet
Teaching students about safety and preparedness during a weather unit is an important part of instruction. This no-prep activity packet will engage students and give them some discussion points about preparing to shelter in place during severe weather situations. Students will practice math problems, science vocabulary, and reading comprehension.
Copy the packet front to back. Once these are copied and stapled in the top left-hand corner, students can get to work! This product is compatible with my free Storm Research Graphic Organizers and the corresponding Tasha and Tio Hurricane Readers Theater Script. I also recommend this product for a long weekend homework assignment.
