Save time planning and help students increase test scores! Use this reading skills bundle to help plan and teach important reading skills taught in the upper elementary grades (3-5) for the ENTIRE YEAR! By having my students keep the interactive notes in their binders, they had a quick reference to help with homework and independent centers. I also had parents frequently tell me they referred to the interactive notes to help with homework or to quiz students while they were reading at home. The worksheets and graphic organizers make for great homework, centers, and/or guided reading assignments. Answer keys are included throughout.
More than 70 pages of interactive notes, worksheets, and graphic organizers are aligned with CCSS and the Virginia SOLs. CCSS skills covered are listed at the top of the product description. Virginia SOLs covered include Language Arts:
