Product Description
You and your students will love the full-year, twice-per-week, 20-minute lessons in the Study Skills Academic Literacy Center Grades 4-8: the perfect cross-curricular program to teach everything teachers think that other teachers must have already taught.

The 56 lessons will help your students learn and practice important cross-curricular study skills. I’ve taken the 40 study skills lessons, included in my popular (thanks, TpT teachers!) Essential Study Skills and designed them for grades 4-8 literacy centers (stations). Plus, I’ve added 16 more lessons! These study skills lessons work perfectly in the collaborative, independent context of literacy centers.

Note: I’ve updated our previous version of Essential Study Skills to the 56 lessons at no extra charge for my Pennington Publishing customers.
