This is a bundle of all of the stories in the first unit of Reading Street. Resources are included for the following stories:
Because of Winn Dixie
Lewis and Clark and Me
On the Banks of Plum Creek
The Horned Toad Prince
Letters Home from Yosemite
This is meant to be a companion guide to the Reading Street stories. After teaching in a Title I school in a sheltered instruction classroom for English Second Language students, we are never satisfied with the resources they have for our low SES and ESL students. They need more description and visuals. That’s what this packet is for, but all students will benefit from the additional instruction.
It includes for each story:
Vocabulary: poster with picture, definition, and picture of each word
Amazing Words: poster with picture, definition, and picture of each word
Vocabulary memory game, foldable, and a skills sheet
Spelling list, practice sheet, alphabetical order sheet
Activities and Posters for the reading strategies and word skills for each week
These resources help better prepare your students for the skills they are held accountable for on the test. We hope this helps you as well!
