Homework, intervention, tutoring, or shared reading--these texts can do it all! This set includes four original texts at third grade reading levels, each with comprehension questions, vocabulary activities, an instructional PowerPoint, a vocabulary assessment, and a quick reading check.
The sets build in length and difficulty. The first text, "The Zarnet", is a scene from a story. The story of "The Recess Troll" is told in the second and third texts. The fourth story, "A School Surprise", is a historical fiction story. The packets feature simple, non-distracting formatting. Instructional PowerPoints include bright photographs to help students build visual connections to the new words.
A teaching guide is included with suggested lesson sequences, thumbnails of selected items, and complete answer keys.
Please note: Several customers have noted difficulties with the ZIP format on their computers. If you have a problem, please contact me by the "Q and A" section or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can get you the files in a different way.
