Description

Monthly engaging and rigorous challenges for students to practice their reading and writing skills. Students practice theme, main idea and detail, compare and contrast, context clues, inferencing, point of view, text structure, text features, character traits, and literal/nonliteral meanings.

Why will these challenges help your students grow?

Engagement- Students will be engaged from the beginning to the end of the challenges. They won't even realize how hard they are working and how much they are learning about hard skills!

Rigor- These challenges are HIGH LEVEL and make students really think about the text. They also work on many reading skills.

Low Prep- You can just print and do the challenge or you can go all out and transform your room! It truly is up to you! This challenge is also done all on SCRAP paper! So, no copying for you!

What’s Included?

Each month the students will be given a challenge that goes with the theme that month. These challenges will take a day or two. They are highly rigorous and extremely engaging to the children. When they complete all the challenges they will earn something each month.

These challenges are great for review, assessment, and reteaching.

Most challenges have a google drive version as well.

September: Back to School Challenge Challenge

October: Bat Cave Challenge

November: Thanksgiving Feast Challenge

December: Christmas Around the World Challenge

January: Winter Themed Challenge

February: Fix Your Broken Heart Challenge

March: Find the Leprechaun Challenge

April:Earth Day Challenge

May: Reading Skill Surgery

After completing the challenge they earn something related to the month and go to the next. The challenges are checked by you (answer key provided). They do not have to do the challenges in order. When they are done I set up a special Holiday-themed spot with books, holiday-themed games, and anything fun!

What are others saying?!

Jordan- great resource!! my kids had an absolute blast with the bat cave challenge - can't wait until our next one!

Meghan- Love, love, love this product. My students loved the Saint Patrick's Day Challenge. I can't wait to try the Earth Day Challenge.

Katie- Such an awesome resource! We recently completed the St. Patrick's Day one and my kids absolutely adored it! They were engaged, but still working on ELA skills! Thanks for the great resource! I can't wait to do the Earth Day one!

>>>HEAD HERE FOR A WHOLE YEAR OF CHALLENGES<<<

I loved doing mini-transformations each month that would engage my kiddos, but I wanted it to be easy to prep. I also wanted the challenge to be very rigorous so that my students were working very hard during a time that they were also engaged. Lastly, I wanted to make sure we were reviewing and assessing skills monthly. That is where these challenges came into play. Now each month we practice skills, I get a small assessment in, we are SO engaged, we make memories, and we challenge ourselves! I hope you can too!

Much Love,

Hannah
