This is meant to be a companion guide to the Reading Street story What Jo Did. 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.
Vocabulary: poster with picture, definition, and picture of each word
Amazing Words: poster with picture, definition, and picture of each word
Vocabulary memory game and a skills sheet
Compare/Contrast poster for the skill introduced in the Reading Street curriculum
Background Knowledge poster for the skill introduced in the Reading Street curriculum
Prefix poster for in- and un- along with a game for centers
Spelling list, practice sheet, alphabetical order sheet
These resources help better prepare our student for the skills they are held accountable for on the test. We hope this helps you as well!
