If you’re using Reading Street, then these writing strips are for you!
**I use the 2011 Common Core Edition of Reading Street.**
We use them as glue in prompts for our spiral notebooks. Just copy, "paper cutter” the left and right sides off, then into strips ready to hand out.
There are 2 spiral writes for this week's main selection.
1. Reread pages 360 and 361. How does Jim react to school at the Agency Boarding School? Use facts about the Agency Boarding School to describe why Jim felt this way.
-Write at least 4 complete sentences
2. Other than being athletic, what are some other strengths/characteristics/childhood experiences that caused Jim to become successful?
-at least 3 complete sentences
-be sure to tell WHY those helped him
Each spiral write features guiding questions and bullet points to help students generate high quality writing.
I find these are most useful on “Day 4” of the Reading Street schedule. They’re great to have students reread/review portions of the story, and expand on their reading.
I hope you enjoy these and check back for more spiral writes for the other Reading Street weeks!
