Here are two skills in one with carefully controlled vocabulary. Preview one of 30 interesting stories to delight both student and teacher while you really make them think. Kids will be profitably busy. The sequence and main idea skills are isolated. Since the vocabulary is carefully controlled, students with differing abilities have access. Students keep busy cutting boxes of story sections, reading, thinking, and pasting story sections in order. They get to read choices and just circle the main idea. Kids love doing these pages that seem more fun than workbooks. For the teacher, it’s great thinking work for kids, but a glance to grade. You can help everyone grow at the same time without laboring over different reading levels. Surprisingly, when you control the vocabulary, sometimes “low readers” do better at sequencing or main idea while “strong readers” find it challenging. My low readers became stronger readers, because they were practicing a specific vocabulary set in each group of six stories.
You are receiving 30 stories, 30 matching main idea choices, and, of course, 30 answer keys. You also receive instructions with a sample class presentation. In addition, you have a list of the vocabulary set for each of the five levels.
