I created some materials to go with our reading series text "So You Want to Be President" from the Reading Street 4th grade textbook by Scott Foresman.
I normally give students a spelling/vocabulary sheet on the Friday before the week we start the story to get students familiar with the words. They have the opportunity to take a spelling test on Monday and move up to the Amazing list for the Friday test.
I made a comprehension worksheet that goes with the story where students can fill in answers as they read or if they are re-reading the story. This helps students go back to the text to pull information out of the story. I included several main idea boxes because my students normally need extra practice on that skill!
I made vocabulary cards for a matching game to use with students that are colored or just black and white. You could also give each student a card in the class and they could find their match with another student and stand by each other. One sheet I made with the matching cards small so that they can take them home and practice.
