Including 4 cloze activities, 4 reading comprehension sheets, and 4 worksheets, this unit is ready-to-print, ready-to-distribute, and ready-to-mark.
The story of Francis Scott Key writing "The Star-Spangled Banner" is presented through four cloze passages, so students can interact with the text by completing the story as they read.
Each cloze section is followed by a page of reading-comprehension questions that require write-in responses.
The unit concludes with several vocabulary sheets:
• Word Search
• Word Scramble
• Word Shapes
• Spelling Review
All activities have clear answer keys, so marking is fast and easy – or may be delegated to a teacher’s assistant, a high-achieving student, or even a student you might want to encourage with a little added responsibility. Students may also self-assess by reference to the score key if the activity is not graded.
Simply download the PDF, select the activities you want for a given class or group of students, print off those sheets, hand them out, and you are done!
