This set of lesson plans, resources, and activities is for use with The Brain: All about Our Nervous System and More! by Seymour Simon. It can be used for whole group, small group, and independent instruction – which makes these resources a smart choice for literacy centers or Reader’s Workshop.

Here's What You'll Get and Why:

My goal was to make it easy to teach readers how to think about The Brain: All about Our Nervous System and More! using a variety of comprehension strategies. That's why I've included page by page lesson plans, guided practice worksheets, and text specific reader's notebook prompts for the following strategies:

- Retelling and Summarizing

- Determining Importance

- Asking Questions

- Understanding Text Structure

- Synthesizing

I also created an Extension Activity for early finishers.

Next, I find that vocabulary instruction works best when it's done within the context of books that students are already reading. That's why I've included the following vocabulary resources:

- Vocabulary Word List

- Flash Cards (match words to pictures and match words to definitions)

- Interactive Vocabulary Notebook Cards

- Vocabulary Word Games Printable

- Personal Vocabulary Word Bookmark

I've also included a word study lesson plan and set of activities, because, much like vocabulary, I find that word study works best within context. As a result, I have identified word patterns within trade books and have developed lesson plans and resources based on the word study that can be done with specific books. The lesson plan and set of resources for The Brain: All about Our Nervous System and More! focuses on Affixes (Latin & Greek Prefixes and Suffixes) and includes the following:

- Lesson Plan

- Interactive Activity

- Practice Page

- Independent Word Work

This set of resources also includes the following:

- Running Record Assessment

- Answer Keys

- Spanish translation of the comprehension strategy practice pages, reader's notebook prompts (complete with Spanish Common Core "I Can" statements), and extension activities for use with The Brain: All about Our Nervous System and More!

- BONUS: Surprise Sample Resource

I hope that you will enjoy using my resources along with your copy or copies of The Brain: All about Our Nervous System and More! by Seymour Simon.
