Vocabulary Cards – The cards can be used on bulletin boards, or even just as a quick set of cards that you introduce before reading the story. For group activities, I like to give a vocabulary card to a group and have them create mini posters to go with each word. This can be done before or after the story has been read.
Vocabulary Interactive page – Students will cut down the middle of the page to create a left and right barn door taped to the edge of paper. Students should also cut the horizontal dotted lines to create the individual flaps. This works great for independent seatwork and to teach study skills.
Before you read worksheet – Use this for independent morning work the morning before you read the story. It works great to build background knowledge. Students love to predict what the story will be about after they had done their morning work!
Genre Interactive- Students will have a page that will go over what makes a nonfiction story. Students will have a chance to point out text features, and facts that make up nonfiction stories.
Extended Reading and Worksheet- This would make for a great cold read or homework sheet. The story is written at a higher ability. However the questions can be answered with ease. The worksheet offers a variety of formats including one question that uses dictionary skills.
