This is a SMART NOTEBOOK file. It can be converted to ActivInspire (for Promethean Users). Throughout these 42 slides, you will find lesson plans for Ready Gen Second Grade Unit 2 Module A. The main text used is Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday. The supporting text is A Chair for My Mother.
On the reading and writing slides, you will find the essential questions, reading focus questions, vocabulary, and close reading questions. Each reading slide also includes an engaging “turn and talk” question for peer interaction. I use these slides when planning and teaching as I find the ReadyGen guides to be overwhelming.
I have included many kid-friendly anchor charts and posters (which are credited at the bottom of the slides) All images and photographs were obtained through Google Images and are for educational use. I did not make/create these images. I am not selling the images. I am using them to support my students and teach concepts with characters and ideas with which they can relate.
I have changed the writing lessons to meet the needs of my struggling learners as I teach special education. The writing plans are not identical to the book but follow the same pathway to the Performance-Based Assessment. My colleagues and I found that the ReadyGen Writing was too difficult for our children and we worked together to alter and differentiate the lessons.
If you are looking for a quick, easy way to implement ReadyGen Reading and Writing in your classroom, this is the file for you! Again, the ReadyGen teacher’s guide should be used AS WELL as these slides. These should not replace your lesson plans but rather used to supplement the ReadyGen program. Feel free to edit the slides as you see fit. :) Happy teaching! Feel free to contact me with any questions before or after purchasing!
