FOUR themes are included, so each week I pull 1 theme that includes a comprehension page, a build a sentence activity and a mini reader. Everything is organized and ready to teach!
----- Comprehension Passages -----
I like to use these in small group settings. Every students gets a page and we walk through our pre-reading activities such as discussing the vocabulary and pictures (to save on copies, you can laminate a few pages and reuse them with each group.)
I read the passage first, then we read it together and finally they whisper read/buddy read. I help students practice touching each word as we read it. Finally, we answer the comprehension question(s) at the bottom.
----- Sentence Building -----
The pictures and vocabulary correlate with the weekly comprehension and mini readers. We usually do these worksheets on Wednesday after they have had a chance to see the comprehension page. Seeing the pictures and vocabulary multiple times throughout the week builds confidence and fluency.
Students read and trace the sentence Then, they cut and match the words to paste them in order. They love to "build" a sentence and illustrate a picture to match.
Finally, students flip their paper over and they write the sentence two times on their own.
----- Mini Readers -----
We love doing our weekly mini readers! We start doing these whole group, but once they understand my expectations, routine, etc. this activity is easily moved to a literacy center.
We use these on Thursday or Friday, so students have already seen the vocabulary and pictures on the Sentence Building worksheet and Comprehension activity earlier in the week.
I read it to them, then we read it whole group chorally and then students practice reading to each other. Then, they can trace the sentences and we answer there comprehension questions on the back page.
Students love to take their books home each week to read to their families!
----- Incentive Chart -----
Students love to fill up their incentive charts! As they complete an assignment, they can color the coordinating star. Students are excited to see their stars fill up as they become ROCK STAR readers and writers! This is an optional tool you can choose use.
