    Scope and Sequence for Reading and Writing

This 17 unit bundle teaches each reading skill completely through engaging and rigorous lesson plans. This bundle includes 17 full-week units with whole group and small group lesson plans. All the activities are provided for introduction lessons, group projects, partner projects, assessments, and more.

    Here's what you'll get:

    5. Reading comprehension assessments
    6. Engaging practice activities

    8. & so much more

    Why will these activities help your students grow and make the teacher happy?

    Engagement- I saw that my students needed more engagement and relation to their real life in order to fully understand the skills, so I created these lessons to keep kids excited and involved the whole time.

    Tiered Approach- We start with a real life lesson, then practice as a whole group, work in a small group, work in partners, and finally work alone. We start with support on the skill and slowly take it away to really push the kiddos.

    Rigor- The lessons keep kids thinking the entire time and push them to reach their potential.

    Low-Prep- These lessons just need to be printed, copied, and they are ready to go! Most activities require little work beforehand for the teacher which makes a teachers busy life easier!

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Roletter says, "What a fantastic resource! It helped make my planning for reading groups a lot easier and make my literacy block more engaging for my students. Thank you! "

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Kara says, "I was so excited to see this when it came out! I just moved from kindergarten to third grade this past school year and didn't know where to start. I looked at my basal reading and honestly felt so overwhelmed and felt it didn't hit the standards. and then I found this! This is such an amazing resource. I love that I can actually say that I feel confident that the kids understood what was being taught and that it was actually revisited time and again throughout the year! Thank you!!!!

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Megan says, ""I cannot say enough about this product. It is AMAZING!! We use the Wonders reading series and these products have helped us bring life to skills and lessons. I highly recommend this resource!"
